The Forensic Neuropsychology and Neurocriminology Laboratory in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine is seeking volunteer research assistants for the 2016-17 academic year.
The overarching theme of our research is to utilize neuropsychological tools to improve our understanding of violent behavior. Current projects in the lab examine the relationships between cognitive ability, personality traits, emotion processing, and violent criminal offending.
Undergraduate volunteers are paired with graduate student mentors. Primary responsibilities include data processing and entry using the REDCap database. As part of their volunteer experience, students receive research mentorship from graduate students and the PI, and have the opportunity to gain exposure to the practice and science of clinical neuropsychology by becoming familiar with neuropsychological assessment techniques and attending various seminars and case conferences within the medical center.
Students should be willing to commit 4-8 hours/week for the remainder of the academic year, and must be able to travel to the Chicago campus at least 1 day per week (university shuttle service is available between campuses).
No prior laboratory experience is required. Essential skills include attention to detail, punctuality, and responsibility. Interested candidates should send a CV to Dr. Michael Brook.
