Research Asistant/Lab Manager in Primate Cognitive Electrophysiology
The Noise lab (PI: Becket Ebitz) is looking for a full-time research assistant and lab manager to provide support for research projects and aid with animal care and husbandry. The lab is located in the Department of Neuroscience in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Montreal. The department is highly collaborative and the research technician will be member of this broader community. Coordinating effectively with veterinary staff, administrators, and technicians from other labs is an important part of the job.
We know that a diversity of perspectives improves and invigorates our work and we encourage applications from people from all backgrounds and with all identities.
About the lab:
The focus of the lab’s research is on the neurobiology of mental processes. We use the nonhuman primate as a model for studying the brain mechanisms that may contribute to mental illness and drug addiction, or be compromised in brain injury. More information about our research is available on our lab website: http://ebitzlab.com
The job will involve three types of tasks: lab managerial duties, support for research projects, and animal husbandry responsibilities. Some duties will be structured (occurring on a weekly or monthly basis), but many others will be independent projects that occur on an as-needed basis. These projects will require independence, organization, and excellent project/time management skills. Because the lab is young, the duties of the job will evolve somewhat over time. This means that the candidate who will be happiest in this position is probably someone who is flexible, open to new experiences, and eager to learn new skills. Below are details of the various duties that the technician may be asked to do:
1) Organizational tasks:
2) Support for research projects:
3) Animal husbandry:
How to Apply:
Please send an email to email@example.com. Please attach a pdf of your resume and briefly describe 1) why you are interested in the position, and 2) hour your previous work experiences relate to this position. We will continue reviewing applications until the position is filled. The start date is negotiable, but ideally February or March 2022.
