Lab manager position in the Social Perception and Intergroup (In)equality Lab at Cornell University
The Social Perception and Intergroup (In)equality Lab at Cornell University (PI: Dr. Amy Krosch) is seeking a full-time lab manager to begin working in the late summer or early fall of 2021.
We examine the basic cognitive and perceptual processes through which social and economic factors amplify discrimination. We take a multilevel approach to research, integrating ideas and methods from experimental social psychology, cognitive neuroscience, behavioral decision-making, and psychophysics.
This position will be split between research-related duties (e.g., subject recruitment, task and stimulus design, data collection, processing, and analysis) and administrative duties (e.g., IRB documentation, experimental material preparation, undergraduate training and supervision, website maintenance). The position is geared toward motivated individuals interested in pursuing an advanced degree or career in psychology in the future, as it will also offer the opportunity to develop independent research projects with the possibility of publication.
This is a full time 1-year appointment with possible extension contingent on successful performance and availability of funding.
Ideal candidates will have a bachelor’s degree in psychology, neuroscience, computer science, statistics, or a related field, plus previous experience conducting research in social psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, or a related field.
Exceptionally strong applicants will also have previous experience with R, SPSS, Matlab, Python, SPM or FSL, Acqknowledge/BIOPAC, ERPLab/NeuroScan, or the desire to gain this experience. All candidates must have excellent organizational abilities, effective written and oral communication skills, and the ability to work independently at times.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
