Research Assistant Position
The NeuroCognition Lab is looking for volunteer undergraduate researchers to administer neuropsychological tests that are integrated with our electrophysiology and neuroimaging projects. Researchers would be trained to conduct, score, and analyze a series of standardized neuropsychological assessments, which includes using REDCap and two different stimulus presentation software suites.
This is a great opportunity to interact directly with study participants---in addition to conducting assessment sessions, researchers will be responsible for subject recruitment for ongoing electrophysiology studies in the lab. Promising students may also be trained on electrophysiological research methods. For details on lab requirements and applying, please email us!
The NeuroCognition Lab in the Psychology Department at Tufts University seeks a part-time hourly student worker to assist in maintaining research databases, performing literature searches and other administrative tasks for our cognitive neuroscience and language lab. Once you are trained, work can be done remotely. The hours for this position will vary depending on laboratory needs.
- Current Tufts undergraduate
- Conscientious and detail-oriented
- Able to follow directions and to work independently after being assigned a task
- Can commit to at least 2 consecutive semesters
- Excellent communication and documentation skills
- Some interest in language, psychology or cognitive science
- Previous work experience in an administrative role or research lab (can provide references)

Prospective Graduate Students
Prospective Graduate Students
We are looking for prospective graduate students with a strong interest in the cognitive science of language, the neurobiology of language and/or language and semantics in neuropsychiatric disorders, especially psychosis.
Please read through our lab’s publications, including current abstracts and posters, for insights into our ongoing work.
If you are interested in joining the lab, you are encouraged to email Dr. Gina Kuperberg ahead of time at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give some indication of your research interests as well as your qualifications.
Graduate students earn their PhD at Tufts University in either Psychology alone or Psychology plus Cognitive Science. Dr. Kuperberg’s lab is based both at Tufts University and the Martinos Center of Biomedical Imaging, at Mass. General Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Students have opportunities to carry out neuroimaging studies using ERPs at Tufts University and using functional MRI and MEG at the Martinos Center.

Post-doctoral fellows have many opportunities in our lab to develop their research programs and become familiar with a variety of different neuroimaging methods to study language processing in the brain, including ERPs, fMRI and MEG.
If you are a recent Ph.D. graduate who is interested in post-doctoral research with Dr. Kuperberg, please contact her directly at email@example.com.
Post-docs in our lab are appointed either through Mass. General Hospital, Harvard Medical School (Department of Psychiatry) or through Tufts University (Department of Psychology).
We also encourage you to familiarize yourself with post-doctoral funding opportunities, including those offered through the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
