The BALLAB (www.bu.edu/ballab/) at VA Boston is looking for two neuroimaging post-doctoral fellows and one post- baccalaureate research assistant starting this coming fall/winter, 2017. Broadly, the BALLAB uses a variety of cognitive neuroscience tools (fMRI, EEG, TMS, psychophysics, cognitive training) to study attention and visual cognition, as well as cognitive and brain dysfunction in Veterans with psychiatric disorders. These specific positions are funded by two new VA grants to use fMRI connectomics to understand and predict cognitive, functional, and clinical dysfunction in Veterans. We are affiliated with Harvard and Boston University, and provide ample opportunity to work on a wide range of projects with collaborators across these institutions. Join a productive and fun lab, develop new projects, present at conferences, access MRI/TMS/EEG, work with clinical populations, do science that has translational potential, and earn a competitive salary.

 Post-bac research assistant: Bachelor’s degree in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, computer science or related field, as well as research experience, some programming knowledge, and desire to make a career in this field.
