Job Description

We are hiring multiple research positions for a non-profit grant. The positions are one year. The grant is to study the ability of meditation to improve a common symptom of trauma experience, emotional numbing. Participants are clinically screened prior to enrollment, then attend a week at a beautiful retreat in northern California to learn meditation. During that week, we further assess them, including with psychophysiological measures. The study is overseen by federal ethics review and all candidates will adhere to those standards. If you are not HIPPA/IRB trained, we will train you.  Hires are through the University of Pittsburgh.

All candidates should be comfortable researching sexual topics, including discussing genital measures with study participants and showing erotic imagery and films. 

The employee may choose to live at the retreat center for rates comparable to the surrounding area, or part-time, as suits their needs and requirements of the position. You cannot work entirely remotely. 

Training is provided in collecting a high-volume of psychophysiological data from study participants. Ideal candidates would be PhD candidates or recent graduates with experience in a psychophysiology laboratory. Advanced undergraduates will be considered. Any experience with Matlab, EGI, MindWare, R, or computer science generally should be mentioned in the application. Opportunities for participation in publications exist dependent on ability to contribute.
