3/23: Post-doctoral position at University of Pittsburgh

Dear colleagues,


The Food For Thought Lab is hiring a post-doctoral fellow with interests in early literacy development in Latino communities and human-computer interaction to join Drs. Diana Leyva and Erin Walker’s new research project this fall 2021. This position is at the Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC) at the University of Pittsburgh, a multi-disciplinary center for research to advance the science of learning by bringing together leading researchers in the cognitive, social, and educational sciences. The project investigates the potential efficacy of a new program that integrates literacy-supporting strategies within an intelligent reading comprehension app to help Latino parents foster their preschoolers’ literacy and language skills. The post-doc will be expected to interact fluently and culturally appropriately with the low-income, Spanish-speaking, Latino families that will participate in this research. To view the details of job description and to apply for the position, please visit: https://cfopitt.taleo.net/careersection/pitt_faculty_external_pd/jobdetail.ftl?job=21001543&tz=GMT-04%3A00&tzname=America%2FNew_York
