I am the Lab Manager in the labs of Drs. Pearl Chiu and Brooks Casas at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (lab information) in Roanoke, Virginia. We are currently seeking a new full-time research technician and would like to get the word out to undergraduates who are interested in such a position.
Projects in the labs are highly interdisciplinary and combine methods from experimental and clinical psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics with functional neuroimaging and electrochemistry to investigate decision-making in healthy and clinical populations. The research technician will be responsible for in-vitro data collection to inform in-vivo models of human neurochemistry. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in graduate school in biomedical science or neuroscience.
