Enrolled Student Applications DUE

Students

ABCD-ReproNim students may participate as either Observer or Enrolled students. An unlimited number of Observer students are welcome to view the pre-recorded lectures, participate in NeuroStars discussions, and access course materials. A hands-on data exercise will be made available each week to review and reinforce course content while developing practical skills in reproducible neuroimaging analyses.

If you are interested in taking part in the course as student, regardless of whether you plan to participate as an Observer or Enrolled student, please fill out a Student Application. The application form will ask you a few questions about your background, research interests, and whether you prefer to take the course as an Observer or Enrolled student.

Enrolled Students

Enrolled students will receive additional direct support from ABCD-ReproNim Teaching Assistants and be assigned a hands-on data exercise each week to review and reinforce course content while developing practical skills in reproducible neuroimaging analyses. Enrolled students will receive an ABCD-ReproNim Certificate of Completion at the end of the course that may be listed on their CV or resume.

Potential enrolled students will have: (i) some familiarity with cognitive science, neuroimaging, and/or psychology, (ii) working knowledge of Python 3 or familiarity in scripting in at least one neuroimaging package (e.g., AFNI, ANTS, FSL, FreeSurfer, SPM), and (iii) the ability to commit to the time requirements for the course.

Enrolled students should be willing to fully commit to six hours of course time per week:

  • 1.5 hours of pre-recorded video lectures (asynchronous)

  • one hour for Instructor Q&A (synchronous; Fridays at 1pm EST/10am PST)

  • one hour for TA Q&A (multiple synchronous options; days/times TBD)

  • 1.5 hours for data exercises due at the end of each week

  • one hour of reading

Students who meet the above eligibility requirements and are able to fully commit to the time requirements are welcome to apply.

Given a limited number of spots, we request that Enrolled students carefully consider their ongoing commitments and discuss their ability to commit to this course with their academic mentors and supervisors. Individuals who are unable to commit to the time requirements are welcome to participate as an Observer student.

We are recruiting four teaching assistants (TAs) who will provide support to ABCD-ReproNim students and instructors. TAs will be available to answer student questions on NeuroStars and will lead a weekly Q&A.

Potential TAs will have: (i) research experience with neuroimaging and cognitive science and/or psychology, (ii) prior experience analyzing data from large datasets, (iii) prior experience teaching, and (iv) familiarity with community standards and open source development.

TAs will receive compensation in the amount of $5,000 (USD) as a consultant for this effort.

TAs should be willing to fully commit to 6 hours of course time per week:

  • 1.5 hours of pre-recorded video lectures (asynchronous)

  • one hour for Instructor Q&A (synchronous; Fridays at 1pm EST/10am PST)

  • 2.5 hours of prep time

TA applicants are asked to provide:

  • an NIH-formatted biosketch that includes: (i) a personal statement (300-word max) of research interests, with an explicit description of the applicant’s interests in ABCD data projects, and (ii) a list of scientific contributions, including peer-reviewed publications, publicly available software packages and tools, or other contributions

Individuals are welcome to submit both a TA and a student application.
