Inviting graduate applications for The Mathematics, Reasoning, and Learning Lab

The Mathematics, Reasoning, and Learning Lab (MRLab) at Rutgers University – Newark, directed by Dr. Miriam Rosenberg-Lee, is recruiting graduate students for the Fall of 2018.

The MRLab studies the brain basis of academic learning in order to understand why some individuals struggle to learn mathematical information, while others succeed easily. We use outside-the-scanner training with functional neuroimaging to track the brain changes that accompany real-world learning, and use this information to improve and refine instruction. We study a variety of populations, including children with learning disabilities and autism spectrum disorders, as well as adults.

Graduate students in the Department of Psychology at Rutgers University – Newark typically receive funding for five years of study, which includes tuition waivers and stipends through a mix of fellowships and assistantships. For more information about applying to our graduate program overall, please visit our webpage: Or contact Dr. Rosenberg-Lee at Applications are due on December 1, 2017.
