Full-time Research Specialist/Lab Manager at Princeton University

The Crockett Lab at Princeton University (PI: Molly Crockett) invites applications for a full-time Research Specialist position to begin in Summer or Fall 2024 (start date flexible).

The position is for one year with a possibility of renewal. The ideal candidate will be interested in ultimately pursuing graduate study in psychology, cognitive science, computational social science, data science, or a related field. Research specialists work closely with Prof. Crockett, as well as postdocs and graduate students.

We are looking for applicants interested in studying social cognition using computational methods. Some of our current projects investigate how narratives influence moral judgment and decision-making; how technology (e.g., social media, AI) impacts social cognition and behavior; how identity characteristics like gender become moralized; how social norms can help or hinder authentic self-discovery and expression; and how moral cognition culturally evolves. Please see https://www.crockettlab.org/ for more on our work.

The Research Specialist will contribute to all aspects of our lab’s research, including (1) developing research materials and programming experiments; (2) collecting human subjects data for behavioral and online studies; (3) analyzing behavioral and web scraped data; (4) recruiting and managing undergraduate research assistants; and (5) general lab research support (e.g., IRB management, equipment purchasing, organizing lab meetings and events, maintaining lab websites and digital infrastructures). The position is an excellent opportunity to gain multidisciplinary research experience.

We believe that our science is better with a diverse team. We embrace and encourage our lab members’ differences in race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, socio-economic status, first-generation status, family or marital status, language, national origin, political affiliation, religion, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our lab members who they are.

To apply for the position, please review the job listing on our lab website and complete the application: https://www.crockettlab.org/research-specialist-2024

Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis and continue until the position is filled.
