Postdoctoral Position at Concordia University, Montreal
The Cognitive and Language Development Laboratory at Concordia University in Montreal (https://www.concordia.ca/artsci/psychology/research/cognitive-language-development-lab.html) has a postdoctoral position to offer, starting in Summer or Fall 2021. The fellow will be expected to collaborate on research projects on the development of selective trust, theory of mind, bilingualism, and child-robot interactions in infancy and early childhood, with funding from SSHRC and NSERC. The depth of theory of mind in infancy is currently examined with conceptual replications of various paradigms, including violation of expectation, anticipatory looking, interactive, etc. Regarding selective trust, the lab examines developmental changes in the cognitive mechanisms involved in selective social learning. Research paradigms used in the lab include habituation, eye tracking, pupillometry, interactive lab-based tasks and parental reports. International collaborations with teams from US, Switzerland, Japan, and Germany are ongoing. Stipend is $50,00CDN/year, plus benefits.
The Postdoctoral Fellow must start his/her appointment by August 31st, 2021.
