Research Assistant Opportunity

Dr. Roeland Hancock (BIRC/Psych) and Dr. Abhishek Dutta (ECE/BME) are seeking research assistants for a project that will build computational models of neural mechanisms and test these models using multimodal neuroimaging, including fMRI, spectroscopy, EEG and TMS.
The position may eventually lead to a PhD.

Students would serve in one or more roles:

  • Collecting and/or analyzing spectroscopy and EEG data, and/or induced electrical fields (Some knowledge of signals and systems will be helpful in this role).
  • Modeling neural populations and simulating electrophysiological responses.
The initial term would be for Fall 2019, with possible extension to Spring/Summer 2020 for 5-10 hours/week at ~$12/hr.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

The lab is currently accepting undergraduate research assistants for Fall 2019.

Research assistants will have the opportunity to work on multimodal neuroimaging projects, neuromodulation (using TMS and tDCS), and/or computational modeling.

If you have any questions or would like to apply, contact the lab director at with a brief statement of interest and any relevant experience.


Postdoc Research Opportunity

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Communication — CT program is funded by a T32 Institutional Research Service Award from the NIH (Inge-Marie Eigsti & Emily Myers, Program Directors). The goal of this program is to provide targeted training in the cognitive neuroscience of communication disorders to predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars. We invite applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowships, to begin in the Fall of 2019.

Postdoctoral trainees will work under the supervision of one or more mentors on the CNC-CT team. For more information about the details of the training program, visit the program’s website. Note that applicants must be US citizens or green card holders.

The successful candidate will join the intellectually rich community at the University of Connecticut, and will have opportunities to collaborate with an outstanding group of scientists and clinicians and to build an independent research program.

For more information about requirements and how to apply, see CNC-CT FLyer. Please email Dr. Roeland Hancock to discuss interest in the NIDL Lab.

Graduate Research Opportunities

Applications for the PhD program in Psychological Sciences will be accepted in Fall 2019, for admission in Fall 2020. Please contact Dr. Hancock to express interest and follow the procedures for applying to the graduate school.

Hourly or partial RA positions are available for current graduate students interested in neuroimaging or psychoeducational/neuropsychological assessment.
