The Kidd and Gopnik labs at UC Berkeley (directed by Celeste Kidd and Alison Gopnik) are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to lead research studies on the development of curiosity and learning throughout development, starting in early childhood. Candidates must have strong quantitative skills (e.g. programming, statistics, machine learning, experimental design). Background developing experiments for children using touchscreens and/or eye-trackers is preferred, but not required.
The one-year position will have a Summer or Fall 2021 start date, ideally August 1, 2021. This work is funded by the John Templeton Foundation; more information about the grant can be found here: www.templeton.org/grant/the-development-of curiosity-in-childhood. Interested applicants should contact Holly Palmeri <> with (a) a CV, (b) a writing sample, and (c) a programming sample or github page. We will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
