Lab manager

The EB Lab is looking for a full-time manager! The position is for a minimum of one year, with the possibility of a second, and is expected to start August 1, 2019, though the specific start date is negotiable. Dr. Wood is joining the Department of Psychology as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2019. The EB Lab will study interpersonal behavior and nonverbal social signals. We will use a wide range of methods, including acoustic analysis, automated facial expression coding, perceptual judgment tasks, dyadic interactions, social network analysis, and crowd movement tracking. Duties will include setting up the new lab, coordinating participant recruitment, creating experiment protocols and materials, training other research assistants, running participants, and processing and analyzing data. The Lab Manager will also have opportunities to co-author scientific papers and conduct independent research. This is an excellent position for a college graduate with a desire to use cutting-edge behavior measurement methods (e.g., computer vision-based pose detection) and an interest in eventually going to graduate school in social psychology or a related field.
