The Laboratory for Infant Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough

The Laboratory for Infant Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough invites applications for a postdoctoral position. The postdoc will be involved in on-going research investigating aspects of perceptual, perceptual-motor, and cognitive development. Currently the laboratory conducts research investigating visual development, multisensory integration, motor development (postural control and locomotor development), perceptual-motor integration and development, and spatial orientation. The position will be available for one year with a possibility of renewal for a second year. The anticipated starting date is negotiable.

 

Qualifications: The candidate must have a PhD in psychology, neuroscience or a related field, as well as a strong background in developmental psychology. Some subset of the following skills are desirable: a strong programming background (e.g., Matlab; Psych Toolbox), experience with eye tracking methods and analyses, and the collection and analysis of postural control and locomotor data. Primary responsibilities will include the initiation of new research projects and lines of research commensurate with the principal research focus of the lab, participation in on-going research projects, preparation of journal manuscripts, undergraduate student mentorship and other research related duties as assigned.

 

Salary and benefits will conform to standard postdoctoral rates at the University of Toronto. To apply, please email a CV, statement of research interests and relevant background, as well as three letters of recommendation to Mark A. Schmuckler (marksch@utsc.utoronto.ca). Applications will be reviewed as they are received. The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
