Postdoctoral Position in Developmental Psychology - University of North Carolina at Greensboro

We are pleased to announce the availability of a postdoctoral position in the DUCK Lab (Development and Understanding of Children’s Knowledge), led by Drs. Janet Boseovski and Stuart Marcovitch in the Department of Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. We seek excellent applicants who have earned a PhD in developmental psychology with an emphasis on cognitive or social aspects of development. Funds for this position are not tied to a specific project and will therefore enable the successful candidate and lab directors to explore areas of common interest. Excellent statistical and writing skills are a requirement for this position. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct independent and collaborative research, disseminate research findings in top-tier journals and at major conferences, engage in the mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students, and contribute productively to the Experimental Child Psychology Research Group at UNCG. We are particularly interested in candidates who would like to get involved in an ongoing collaboration with the Greensboro Science Center (e.g., children’s selective learning and retention in informal environments). 

The starting time for the position is negotiable, but it can begin as early as August 1, 2015, and can be renewed for multiple years. Informal inquiries can be made to Dr. Marcovitch (s_marcov@uncg.edu). Applications will be reviewed immediately and until the position is filled. Please include a statement of interest, CV, and sample publications. In addition, candidates should arrange to send 3 letters of reference.

UNC Greensboro is especially proud of the diversity of its undergraduate and graduate student body, and we seek to attract an equally diverse applicant pool for this position, including women and members of ethnic minority groups.  We are an EEO/AA employer with a strong departmental, college, and university commitment to increasing faculty diversity.
