Research Assistantships, Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI), Philadelphia/Elkins Park, PA
The language labs at MRRI -- Language and aphasia (Dir.: Dr. Myrna Schwartz); Language and learning (Dir.: Dr. Erica Middleton) -- are recruiting for two BA/BS-level research assistant positions, for Fall 2013 or Spring 2014. Research assistants will engage in NIH-funded research on language processing in typical speakers and those with post-stroke aphasia. We seek in our research to understand how words are learned and retrieved in speech, how these processes are affected by stroke, and how word production deficits can be ameliorated by treatment. Our RAs gain valuable experience with language-impaired patients. They are trained to administer clinical measures of aphasia and to design, run, and analyze experiments with patients as participants. Learning opportunities also include state-of-the art lesion analysis and applications of computational modeling.
Applicants should have strong academic backgrounds in psychology, neuroscience or linguistics, with coursework in statistics and research methods. Preference will be given to applicants with prior research experience, particularly in cognitive psychology or neuroscience, speech and hearing sciences, or linguistics.
