**Update: we're currently looking for science fact-checkers with experience in any of the following topics: drugs for the brain (as well as supplements), placebo effects, positive psychology, and serious games (including brain games). Projects range from 7-12 hours total. Immediate start time.**
Ever flinch when you read a popular science book that gets a fact wrong or misstates a finding about the brain? Now, you’ve got a chance to prevent that…
We're looking for science fact checkers for our founder's upcoming book ("Smarter Tomorrow: How 15 Minutes of Neurohacking a Day Can Help You Work Better, Think Faster, and Get More Done", Little, Brown Spark/Hachette). You’ll get to read the manuscript before the general public, and best of all, you’ll get to improve it.
This is a paid, short-term position.
Start time: immediate.
We're looking for a grad student (masters or PhD) or talented undergrad with proficiency in statistics, experimental methods, and a comfort with (and hopefully, a love for!) psychology and neuroscience research papers. You’ll be checking back into the original research papers that the book cites and making sure that the book is accurately representing any qualitative or quantitative findings.
Depending on how this goes, there may be other opportunities to work on projects here at NeuroEducate.
We look forward to your contribution so we can make this book as helpful, informative, and scientifically accurate as possible! If you (or someone you know) would be a good fit for this project, please let us know!
