Baylor University invites applications for a full-time, post-baccalaureate research coordinator position to assist on projects funded by the National Science Foundation. These projects investigate the interplay of sleep, creativity, and STEM learning using polysomnography, actigraphy, and fMRI neuroimaging. Additional projects investigate classroom-based sleep interventions and outreach activities at the museum.
The full-time position, which includes a full benefits package, is available immediately.
The research coordinator will join Dr. Scullin’s Sleep Neuroscience and Cognition (SNAC) Laboratory (http://sites.baylor.edu/scullin). They will collaborate with the Baylor Psychometric Laboratory (Dr. Alex Beaujean) and the fMRI neuroimaging core at the VISN 17 Center of Excellence (Dr. Steve Nelson). The applicant selected for the coordinator position will join an energetic group of researchers who take a team science approach to investigating the basic mechanisms of cognition, how sleep physiology affects those cognitive mechanisms, and how to restore or compensate for cognitive deficits in advancing age and in Alzheimer’s disease.
A bachelor’s degree is required. Candidates must possess excellent interpersonal skills, display sound judgment, and be dependable. Experience working in a research laboratory, particularly with sleep or neuroimaging procedures, is preferred but not required.
Inquiries about this position can be directed to Dr. Michael Scullin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should provide a CV or resume, cover letter, and contact information for at least two references.
