The Michigan Neurogenetics and Developmental Psychopathology (MiND) lab, directed by Dr. Luke Hyde, is seeking 1 – 2 full-time research assistants/lab managers and a data manager. The lab examines the development of youth risk and resilience from multiple levels of analysis using MRI, molecular and behavioral genetics, longitudinal approaches, and in-home interviews with at-risk families. The focus of these positions is to coordinate and collect data on multiple projects in the lab with a focus on the MTwiNS Project. MTwiNS, funded by NIMH and NICHD, examines the impacts of neighborhood disadvantage on brain and behavior, as well as long term antisocial and resilient outcomes. MTwins is a longitudinal study of families with twins ages 10 – 18 living in impoverished neighborhoods and is in collaboration with S. Alexandra Burt at Michigan State University. Families visit the MiND lab for a full day visit including MRI scans, psychiatric interviews, family interaction tasks, biospecimen assay (e.g., saliva, blood), and survey measures.

As some of these projects are being done jointly with other labs, the position entails coordinating with these other labs. This position is ideal for those interested in pursuing a future PhD in clinical or developmental psychology or neuroscience. A successful applicant will have a Bachelor’s in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field, interest in clinical and developmental psychology or neuroscience. Successful applicants are likely to have experience in several of the following areas: psychiatric interviewing, working with underserved families in the community, computer programing experience (e.g., Matlab, R, command line), and experience with fMRI processing and analysis.
