Profile

We are seeking an outstanding individual to be a Post-doctoral fellow in the Center for Translation Cognitive Neuroscience (CTCN) (http://sites.bu.edu/ctcnlab/) at Boston University School of Medicine and VA Boston Healthcare system. Based at VA Boston, the CTCN lab focuses on applying the techniques of cognitive neuroscience to increase our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Two-year commitment required.

The specific project which funds the position seeks to test a pragmatic introduction of ERPs into the existing workflow of participants and patients in the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and affiliated memory disorders clinics with the hypotheses that ERPs will provide (1) additive diagnostic information beyond that of neuropsychological testing alone and (2) data on how brain physiology is altered by neurodegenerative diseases and traumatic brain injuries.

Other ongoing projects in the laboratory that the fellow may be involved with include examining: (A) the effects of social isolation and the built environment on cognition and mood; (B) the impact of false memories and misinformation on older adults with and without Alzheimer’s disease; (C) the relationship between structural MRI, ERP, neuropsychological, and behavioral data in older adults with and without memory disorders; (D) autobiographical memory in individuals with memory disorders; and (E) the relationship between consciousness and memory in individuals with and without memory disorders.

Successful applicants will have demonstrated research interests in translational research, experimental psychology, and/or cognitive neuroscience, as well as a demonstrated record of research project management (e.g., study design, IRB protocol writing, data collection, data analysis, and manuscript preparation).

The applicant should be highly motivated, able to work both independently and as part of an interdisciplinary team. As part of their job duties, the candidate will participate in a variety of professional development activities, including activities with the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, leading publications and presentations, and participating in individual and group mentorship activities.

Women, members of under-represented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

ESSENTIAL RESPONSIBILITIES / DUTIES:

The Post-doctoral fellow is responsible for:

Supervising research assistants and students who complete Institutional Review Board (IRB) submissions and management for human research, including new applications, amendments, continuing review reports, study personnel changes, safety report submissions per IRB policies and procedures, protocol deviations, etc.; (30%)
