Areas of investigation in the lab include early emerging knowledge domains, symbolic and abstract thought and reasoning, pictorial and mental imagery, mathematical cognition, and spatial cognition. The lab uses behavioral and computational approaches and tests participants ranging in age from infants through adults. The Department of Psychology at New York University offers a rich intellectual community in the developmental and cognitive sciences.
This position is expected to focus on children’s production and interpretation of pictorial and linguistic symbols referring to places, objects, and people. The Postdoctoral Associate will be expected to design and conduct studies with infants, children, and adults both remotely and in-person (when in-person testing resumes). This position is ideal for any researcher interested in how the foundations of human knowledge support human cultural flourishing.
Interested candidates should include a cover letter, CV, representative first-author publication, and contact information for three references. The application is available at: https://apply.interfolio.com/85962
