The Bergelson Lab at Duke
a federally funded lab in Duke's Psychology & Neuroscience department, is
looking to hire an excited, competent, and detail-oriented recent graduate

development, and in particular, on how word learning interfaces with other
levels of linguistic representation, and other dimensions of cognitive and
social development. We are part of Duke CHILD Studies

toddlers, and a team of researchers from the undergraduate to postdoctoral

* vocabulary assessment and other cognitive development measures,
* miscellaneous aspects of project and lab upkeep.
* writing and maintaining project & lab documentation & calendars

This would be an excellent position for someone looking for research
experience with infants and families, in visual, environmental, social, and
linguistic aspects of cognitive development.

The lab manager's contribution would potentially lead to authorship on
papers published from the results of these data, and hands-on involvement
in the nuts-and-bolts of research in cognitive development.

* BA or BS in psychology, cognitive science, linguistics, or a related field
* strong independent work ethic
* previous research experience in a psych, cogsci, linguistics, or related
research lab

The position begins *Early Summer 2019. *This is a one year position, with
the possibility of extension.
