CARD investigates the neurobiological basis of human behavior, consumer preferences, and decision making.   

This position will offer a dynamic and interdisciplinary research experience, combining multimodal research techniques using fMRI, eye tracking, and biometrics (heart rate, skin conductance). Primary duties entail scheduling and overseeing data collection and analysis in different neurophysiological methodologies. The coordinator will also assist in the upkeep and maintenance of the various research equipment at the center. Other responsibilities include preparation and submission of human subject protocols and progress reports, data entry, and basic data analysis.   

The candidate will also assist the Director in collating and responding to funding opportunities. As Research Coordinator, the candidate will also coordinate schedules for other undergraduate research assistants at the center, observe compliance of work rules, and coordinate project schedules with graduate students and researchers at the center. The position offers training that can help prepare the coordinator for graduate school in a range of fields, including psychology, business, and marketing.
