The Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) seeks a post-doctoral research associate that will work in the laboratory of Dr. David E. Warren (principal investigator/PI) with the PI and his research team to plan, develop, implement, and conduct research projects at UNMC. This includes ongoing NIH-funded research in developmental, aging, and neurological populations including healthy children, healthy older adults, and patients on the Alzheimer’s disease continuum. The PI’s lab uses cognitive neuroscience techniques including cognitive assessment, neuropsychology, psychophysical testing, eye-movement monitoring, structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and genomic assays. Duties involve research study design, participant recruitment, data collection, data analyses, and preparation of scholarly products. Scholarly products will include peer-reviewed publications, conference abstracts, extramural grant applications, progress reports, intramural institutional review board protocols, and other compliance reports as directed. Finally, the post-doc will also work as directed with collaborators at UNMC and other institutions.
