Alzheimer’s disease is a debilitating neurodegenerative disease that imposes a huge burden on individuals, families, and the US healthcare system. Yet early diagnosis of the disease remains a difficult challenge. We have designed naturalistic cognitive behavioral tests related to memory and language to predict Alzheimer's disease and Mild Cognitive Impairment during early phases of the disease. We will validate these tests by comparing performance on these tests to performance on existing neurpsychological tests and biomarker data. We will track individuals longitudinally to measure variability and rate of decline.


Duties may include:


- Implement web experiments in Javascript, Qualtrics, or similar

- Recruit, schedule, and run participants (online and in-person)

- Perform literature reviews

- Data cleaning and preliminary data analyses

- Writing internal progress reports and abstracts/manuscripts for submission to conferences




- BA or BS in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, or other related field

- Experience with subject recruitment (some undergrad experience is sufficient). Previous work with elderly or clinical population is preferred, but not necessary.

- Must have basic data science skills -- minimum Excel, but basic programming skills is preferred (R/Python especially).

- Good communication and organizational skills.
