Neuro-Memory and Aging
Full Time
Req Number: 

In the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, the ALBA Language Neurobiology laboratory is directed by Dr. Maria Luisa Gorno Tempini and the Tee Lab is led by Dr. Boon Lead Tee. The ALBA lab studies how language is organized into brain networks across the lifespan. ALBA group researches how language skills and brain regions are impacted by neurological conditions and how they reorganize in response. The Tee Lab focuses on scientific research that encourages equal representation from diverse populations worldwide in cognitive and dementia research, which would greatly enhance our neuroscientific understanding to brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases. The Tee Lab aims to address current calls for culturally and linguistically appropriate cognitive assessment tests, stimulate the development of novel tests for syndromic differentiation in different languages, and enhance our understanding of various neural mechanisms by promoting language diversity in cognitive research. The Tee lab has collaborated with scientists and researchers from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, India, and Turkey, aiming to delineate the neural mechanism of bilingualism and dementia syndromes through cross-linguistic perspectives, promote language diversity in cognitive research and offer equitable care for speakers of different languages. This position will be a joint position between the ALBA and Tee lab.

Under the supervision of Principal Investigators (PIs), the incumbent will perform entry-level duties related to the support and coordination of clinical studies of participants with language difficulties enrolled within the UCSF Memory and Aging Center and may receive training and development to prepare and advance for journey-level work at the next level within the series.
