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.
A Research Assistant 2 will provide support in a non-human primate systems neuroscience laboratory with a focus on computational modeling of complex learning and decision making and how it relates to the activity of motivational neural circuits. The research technician will work closely with the Principal Investigator. The technician will be expected to work autonomously and oversee daily behavioral testing and training of animals, husbandry as necessary, assist with stereotaxic surgeries and neurophysiological recording procedures, train research technicians, preparation of reagents, and the preparation of written reports and when necessary regulatory documentation.
