The successful candidate will work in the NHP branch of the laboratory, which studies neural mechanisms of cognition in the primate brain using a wide range of experimental neuroscience techniques, including electrophysiological recordings, micro-stimulation, MR imaging, and behavioral approaches.
We are seeking an extremely motivated candidate who is interested in both animal care and scientific research.
The primary responsibilities of this position are to work closely with postdoctoral researchers and graduate students to train macaques on behavioral/cognitive tasks, assist with MRI imaging and surgical procedures, and manage the animal colony (in close collaboration with the veterinary staff).
