The Social Neuroscience and Psychopathology (SNaP) Lab at Rush University Medical Center, directed by Dr. Christine I. Hooker, is looking for motivated and high-achieving undergraduate research assistants to assist in several clinical trials examining emotional processes and social cognition in psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Undergraduate RAs will have a variety of responsibilities similar to other labs, such as data entry and transcription; however, those who show initiative will also have the opportunity to learn clinical interviewing, neuropsychological testing, and neuroimaging. Exceptional RAs may have the opportunity to present posters, with long-term RAs having the possibility of being on an academic publication.
The SNaP lab requires a minimum commitment of 10 hours a week for at least one year. The SNaP lab is happy to host students who would like to receive course credit for their work, but student's should check with their advisor before joining. More information about the lab and our work can be found at www.christinehookerphd.com.
Interested students should contact the lab Research Coordinator, Abhishek Saxena, via email (email@example.com) and include their CV and a brief description of what skills they may bring to the lab and what they hope to get out of their experience, as well as their availability to begin work in the lab.
