Research Coordinator – Stanford University Educational Neuroscience Initiative

This role will provide a range of research support to the lab and the Principal Investigator. Primary responsibilities include: directly conduct and coordinate data collection efforts for child and adult research protocols, develop lab protocols for data sharing, storage, and analysis, develop new experimental materials for children including task paradigms and stimulus sets, maintain detailed and organized research records, submit and renew materials to the Institutional Review Board (IRB), and train other new researchers in lab procedures. This position will report directly to the Principal Investigator leading this important initiative.
The Educational Neuroscience Initiative is a basic and applied research effort that brings together elementary school education and neuroscience research on how the brain changes with learning. We bring cutting-edge tools in electrophysiology (EEG) and recent insights into brain plasticity and attention-driven changes in brain activity into meaningful interaction with foundational issues in education such as early academic development in reading, mathematics, and executive function. This includes both local work with partner schools that map out changing brain responses as children learn, as well as national and international collaborations with networks of researchers pursuing similar goals.
