The Cornell Neurotech Hub (NeuroNex) is dedicated to developing new technologies for imaging the brain, then disseminating them to the wider neuroscience community via a three-step approach. First, engineers will develop new imaging tools to allow access to previously inaccessible brain regions. Second, neuroscientists and data experts will demonstrate the tools by using them to address fundamental questions about how nervous systems generate behaviors. Finally, the new tools will be disseminated to the wider neuroscience community through scientific workshops, lab demonstrations, and synergistic collaborations with technology companies and other research labs outside Cornell.
The Project Associate for the hub will provide a high level administrative support to the principal investigator, co-principal investigators, hub manager, administrators, and additional distinguished faculty as assigned. This support requires highly developed communication, planning, and project management skills and a proven ability to take independent action when appropriate. Manage the logistics and execution of meetings and specialized events with multiple Cornell and external participants; oversee and develop programs/projects, marketing materials, program materials, etc.; facilitate and maintain project timelines and critical deadlines associated with large multi-participant center awards. Prepare data for grant reports. Exercise independent judgment and initiative with high level of creativity and decision making. Handle sensitive information.

Some of the work described will be done in partnership with staff in Applied and Engineering Physics (AEP) as appropriate.
