The Temple University Infant and Child Laboratory at Ambler is looking for
a post-doctoral fellow to work on projects with Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek and
Dr. Roberta Golinkoff. This is a fabulous opportunity to hone your research
experience and gain additional publications and presentations.

 The project is an IES-funded collaborative study between Temple University
and University of Delaware, investigating preschool spatial skills training
by examining various strategies for teaching spatial skills and comparing
the delivery of those strategies in concrete and digital formats. Because
the training involves language and gesture, as well as digital
applications, applicants with a wide range of experience will be considered
for the position.  This position has a 1-year minimum, with the possibility
of extending to 2 years.

As the project manager, the post-doctoral fellow will be expected to
participate at all levels of the project. The responsibilities include:

- Data collection at preschool sites,
- Training and supervision of undergraduate and graduate RAs and other
project staff,
- Data coding and analysis,
- Write-up and dissemination of results for internal reports and
peer-reviewed publications,
- Presentation of findings in national and international conferences,

Required qualifications:

- Ph.D. in Psychology, Education, or a related field
- Experience working with young children in research/preschool settings
- Training in a wide range of areas including, early cognitive development
with an emphasis on spatial learning, early mathematical readiness, play
and learning, language and gestural development
- Excellent interpersonal, leadership, writing, and organizational skills
- Ability to interact with a diverse population of participants
- Proficiency with SPSS, SAS, and/or R
