Postdoctoral Opportunity
University of California, San Diego
Department of Cognitive Science

Seeking a Postdoctoral researcher to collaborate in NSF-funded studies of
infant social development. The project has longitudinal and cross-sectional
investigations of infants (currently 3 to 12 months of age). Current
activities include:
- Controlled tests of learning and perceptual processing and social skills
- Observational studies of detailed infant-caregiver interactions.
- Physiological measures of infants and parents
- State-of-the-art computer and robotic simulations (see
Salary and benefits are competitive. All applications received by May 31,
2007 will be reviewed. The position will remain open until filled.

The postdoctoral scholar will help run the study by overseeing data
collection and data analysis, assist in project management, and collaborate
in publications and presentations.

We are looking for a promising scientist to make intellectual and practical
contributions to an interdisciplinary project. Candidates should have a
doctorate in psychology, child psychology, neuroscience, or allied
discipline. Strong methodological and statistical training is a requirement,
as is experience in experimental studies of infant cognition/perception.
Experience with longitudinal or observational methods, computer modeling or
programming, and databases is desirable. Good organizational and management
skills, and effective written and oral communication, are essential.

Postdocs may participate in the Center for Human Development
), and Cognitive Science activities, as well as events with affiliated UCSD
centers such as the Center for Research in Language, Institute for Neural
Computation, Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind, Psychology Department, etc.
