NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing Postdoctoral Associate in New York, New York
The NYU Department of Psychology (PI: Marjorie Rhodes) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher to begin Summer or Fall 2020. The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to collaborate on lab projects and develop new lines of research related to conceptual development or the development of social cognition. Current projects in the lab examine how subtle features of language shape children’s representations of social categories, how children develop representations of biological and social kinds, the mechanisms underlying the development of social biases, and the implications of children’s representations of the social world for their own behavior. The lab employs a range of methods including online research with children, analyses of natural language, field experiments, longitudinal studies, cross-cultural comparisons, and laboratory-based studies. The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to develop an independent line of research and to collaborate on large team projects. More information about the lab is available at http://kidconcepts.org and https://discoveriesinaction.org. The initial appointment will be for one year, with reappointment contingent on funding, progress, and mutual agreement. Review of applications will begin on January 2nd, 2020.
