The Princeton Baby Lab

The Princeton Baby Lab (Department of Psychology, Princeton University) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work with Dr. Casey Lew-Williams.

The ideal candidate will have knowledge of statistical and programming tools (e.g., R, Matlab), interest in interacting with other faculty members in the department (e.g., Dr. Lauren Emberson, Dr. Adele Goldberg, Dr. Uri Hasson), and interest in our new Program in Cognitive Science.
