Why should you join us? Glad you asked. So many reasons! We are a fun group of people with a variety of backgrounds both culturally and scientifically. We may be biased but we also feel that we do pretty good research :) So, this can be an ideal place to learn something new, teach others what you already know, and make important scientific contributions. We also have access to great resources. The lab space is located down the hall from a 3T Prisma MRI scanner at the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI, The lab also houses its own TMS equipment and is pioneering the use of concurrent TMS-fMRI that allows TMS to be delivered inside the MRI scanner. There are also opportunities for collaborations across several Atlanta-based universities including Georgia Tech, Emory and Georgia State. Finally, Georgia Tech is located in the heart of Atlanta - a vibrant, multicultural city that provides a variety of cultural, culinary, and entertainment opportunities. Get in touch if you want to learn more about the lab, Georgia Tech, or the city of Atlanta.

We currently don't have funding for new postdocs.

Ph.D. Students
We are accepting 2 new graduate students for Fall 2023. If you are interested in applying, feel free to email Dr. Rahnev with any questions about the application process.

Research assistants (open only to Georgia Tech undergraduates)
We are looking for motivated research assistants to join the lab. There are many opportunities for people who want to gain experience with research. In particular, research assistants can lead projects and even become first authors on the resulting publications. However, a requirement for such involvement is the ability to program in MATLAB, Python, or Java. If you want to lead your own project, you'll receive plenty of help and guidance but you need to do most of the programming work yourself. If you can't program, then more traditional positions in which you work under a postdoc or a graduate student are also available. Most projects involve working on behavioral studies but a few include working with fMRI and TMS. If you are interested in joining the lab, email Dr. Rahnev at Please, include a CV or a resume, as well as a short statement about your interests.
