The Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) is located 12 miles west of the OHSU main campus, and sits on 162 acres of land featuring forested areas, research and administration buildings, indoor and outdoor animal housing, a pond, and 2-mile perimeter walking path. Our mission is to improve human health and the quality of life through the support of nonhuman primate research programs that advance our knowledge of the causes, preventions, treatments, and cures of debilitating diseases.
The Research Assistant 2 will provide support for a non-human primate systems neuroscience laboratory with a focus on learning and decision making and how it relates to the activity of motivational neural circuits. The research assistant will work closely with the Principal Investigator and laboratory manager. The technician will be expected to initially work under their direct supervision until properly trained, whereupon they will work under their general supervision and conduct daily behavioral testing of non-human primates and assist with animal husbandry. Position requires occasional weekend work. Prior experience with non-human primates is desirable but not required.
