The Development of Social Cognition Lab, directed by Katherine Kinzler, recently moved to Cornell from the University of Chicago.  We are looking to hire a Research Assistant and a Postdoctoral Fellow.  Start-date is flexible and review of applications will commence immediately.
The lab focuses on social-cognitive development, with an emphasis on how language marks social groups.  Current research areas of focus include: 1) The development of language as a social category; 2) NIH-funded research on food choice and social cognition; 3) Templeton-funded research on the social consequences of multilingual environments; 4) Moral development and intuitive approaches to law and psychology.  For more information, please see the lab’s website at
The research assistant will participate in all aspects of the research process, including working closely with graduate and undergraduate students, and recruiting child participants.  The postdoctoral fellow’s research program may vary depending on the postdoc’s interests, and the funding source available.
