The SCIP (social cognition & intergroup processes) Lab, directed by Dr. Sylvia Perry at Northwestern University in the Department of Psychology seeks a full-time (with benefits) lab manager/research technician beginning the Summer or Fall of 2021.
The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility to extend for additional years based on performance and continued funding. The lab manager will work closely with the PI and lab group on a research program investigating how social contexts and attitudes affect behavioral and physiological outcomes within intergroup interactions in both adult and child populations.
SCIP lab members have been accepted into competitive Social, Community, and Clinical Psychology PhD programs, thus this position is ideal for individuals who wish to pursue research in the future. The lab manager/research technician will be involved with scientific presentations at conferences, the writing of journal manuscripts, and the ability to start their own projects in collaboration with Dr. Perry and her research lab.
To apply, please submit a cover letter and CV/resume, and arrange to have two letters of recommendation sent to Dr. Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the subject line “lab manager position” in your email, and have your letter writers use the subject line “letter of recommendation for [your name] for lab manager position”. If this ad is still available on the website, the position is still available.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled, but we encourage applicants to submit their materials by April 30, 2021. Questions about this position should be directed to Dr. Sylvia Perry at Sylvia.email@example.com.
