COMMITMENT: 8-10 hr/wk; 2011-2012
COMPENSATION: Not listed
We are seeking a research assistant to help with several projects on the origins and outcomes of how we perceive and are influenced by other people, taking into account the roles of variables such as emotions, gender, culture, race and ethnicity, and nonverbal behaviors. Examples of current lines of research that we are pursuing include the effects of nonverbal expressions of power/status and connecting or engaging with others, perceptions of working mothers, and the social-cognitive effects of oxytocin. In addition to self-report and behavioral data, the research conducted in this lab often employs psychophysiology measures, hormone assays, facial action coding, and eye tracking.
Expected time commitment is between 8-10 hours per week and duties will likely include attending lab meetings, contributing to study design, running participants, coding qualitative data, and performing literature reviews. No research experience or background in psychology is required, though all applicants should possess a motivation to gain research experience, a strong work ethic, and an enthusiasm for social psychology.
To apply or inquire about the details of the position or the research that is conducted in Professor Cuddy’s lab, please contact Caroline Wilmuth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
