Lab Manager Position
The Center of Neuroscience, Neuroendocrinology & Clinical Translation (CoNNeCT) Laboratory (PI: Angela Fang) at the University of Washington is seeking a full-time lab manager to assist in research studies examining the psychological and neurobiological mechanisms underlying psychiatric disorders. The position will begin September 2020.
The primary goal of the lab is to translate findings from the basic science of social cognition and emotion to improve the prevention, assessment, and treatment of anxiety and obsessive compulsive related disorders. Techniques employed in the lab include functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), neuroendocrine assays, pharmacological tests, and behavioral/cognitive paradigms.
The lab manager will be primarily responsible for data management, setup and maintenance of lab protocols and equipment, administrative duties (e.g., grant/manuscript preparation, budgets, purchasing), as well as management of lab personnel. Secondary responsibilities may include participant recruitment (e.g., phone screen interviews), data acquisition, and coordination and conduct of research studies.
This is an ideal research opportunity for a candidate at any career stage interested in clinical psychology, neuroscience, or medicine. The position offers training in clinical interviewing, clinical study design, and neurobiological methods, as well as opportunities for co-authorships on publications and presentations.
Two years of college level course work in a relevant academic area AND two years of experience as a Research Study Assistant OR equivalent education/experience.
Candidates should have a demonstrated interest in working with clinical populations and possess strong quantitative, organizational, and communication skills.
Experience with fMRI data acquisition and/or analysis, Matlab, Linux/Macintosh OS, Qualtrics, and SPSS are strongly preferred, but not required.
