Furthermore, the incumbent may have the opportunity to creatively contribute to the research project by proposing alternative analysis strategies, generate novel projects with existing data, and review literature for manuscript preparation. The incumbent will be actively and significantly involved in publishable research activities, including reviewing journal articles and engaging in discussions on research and the interpretation of research results with PI and others in the lab.

Professional Competence (5%)

This position requires strong interpersonal, communication, and decision-making skills; excellent time management and organizational skills, as well as the ability to work well independently and as part of a team. The incumbent may have the opportunity to submit data for presentation at relevant conferences, such as Society for Biological Psychiatry or Society for Neuroscience (if funding is available). The incumbent is expected to actively participate in weekly lab meetings, journal club presentations, presentations from outside speakers. The incumbent will also participate in appropriate professional/technical societies or groups and/or review research proposals, journal manuscripts, and publications related to area of expertise. Finally, we hold optional but highly recommended weekly workshops to help incumbents develop their career goals and prepare materials for applications to graduate school, medical school and other careers.

Service (5%)

The incumbent will act as a mentor for undergraduate volunteers in the lab, and provide training in lab procedures.
