Areas of investigation in the lab include early emerging knowledge domains, symbolic and abstract thought and reasoning, pictorial and mental imagery, mathematical cognition, and spatial cognition.

Responsibilities for the position include experimental design and stimuli development, running behavioral experiments with infants, children, and adults (in the lab, in museums, and/or online), participant recruitment, management and analysis of data, and lab administration (e.g., managing IRB protocols and training other lab members).

A Bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science, Psychology, Neuroscience, or a related field as well as excellent organizational and interpersonal skills are required. Flexible working hours are also required. Previous research experience, especially with infants or children, is strongly preferred.

Additional highly desired qualifications include:
- Strong computational, statistical, and technical skills (e.g., in Matlab, R, Python)
- Strong artistic skills, including university-level coursework in the fine arts or facility with design software (e.g., Blender, the Adobe Suite)
- Experience with scientific outreach
- Familiarity with IRB protocol submissions

Interested candidates should include a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references. The application is available at: https://apply.interfolio.com/85963
