    Key Responsibilities:

    In this pivotal role, you'll take the lead in executing major research projects and collaborating with faculty members to perform cutting-edge analyses. You'll supervise volunteer research assistants and oversee various research studies, from design to data collection and analysis. Your role will involve managing research subject recruitment, preparing data for publication in top-tier academic journals, conducting literature reviews, drafting and revising papers, coordinating lab meetings, managing research budgets, and project coordination.

We also encourage those with ability to perform statistical analyses on large databases to apply. If you're comfortable using tools like Qualtrics and online recruitment platforms, that's a plus too.
