The Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago seeks a postdoctoral researcher to work on a new project focused on the relation between parents’ and children’s attitudes about mathematics. The postdoctoral researcher will work directly with the institutional principal investigators on research that is aimed at understanding inter-generational relationships in attitudes toward math, and how these attitudes are conveyed. It is expected that the research associated with this position will lead to the development and study of parent and preschool interventions to improve young children’s math attitudes and math learning.
The postdoctoral researcher will participate in all aspects of research management, development and implementation. He/she will supervise several full-time employees as well as part-time student employees working on a number of separate projects.
A doctoral degree is required in psychology, cognitive science, or education with research interests in child development, preferably mathematical development. Experience supervising and coordinating the work of others and strong project management skills are preferred. Must be able to represent the project to diverse audiences.
Start date is flexible; preferred date is February 1. Interested candidates should send a CV, a research statement, pre-prints/reprints of papers, and two letters of recommendation to:
Susan Levine, Ph.D. Department of Psychology University of Chicago 5848 S. University Avenue Chicago, IL 60637 email: email@example.com
