Announcing a full-time lab manager position in Stephen Mitroff's Visual Cognition Lab at George Washington University. Research projects focus on individual differences in, and the malleability of, visual perception and attention. Study topics include what makes one individual a better visual searcher than another, how visual search abilities can be enhanced and trained, and how visual search skills develop. The project involves testing university-based participants in typical cognitive psychology studies, assessing “big data” collected via a smartphone app, and data collected via Mechanical Turk. This position is funded by the Army Research Office, and the research program focuses on several applied topics including military and security searches.
The position requires a Bachelor's degree and basic computer skills. Proficient Excel skills are needed and Matlab programming is a plus. Duties include recruiting and running subjects, managing undergraduate research assistants, orchestrating projects conducted by postdocs, graduate students and undergraduate researchers, overseeing day-to-day operations, helping with IRB protocols, and helping with data analysis. This position includes the opportunity to pursue a variety of research opportunities that can result in authorship on academic publications.
Superb organizational skills are a must as the position requires simultaneously overseeing several projects and maintaining a large corpus of data on individual differences measures. Preference will be given to those with prior related research experiences and an interest in future research. The position is to start in July/August 2018 (with some flexibility), and a one-year commitment is required (with the possibility of additional time). Information about the research program can be seen here: http://www.mitrofflab.org <http://www.mitrofflab.org/>
Formal applications can be submitted through GW at http://www.gwu.jobs/postings/50622 <http://www.gwu.jobs/postings/50622>. Interested applicants should also email Stephen Mitroff at mitroff at gwu.edu and include a CV and the names and contact information for 2 references.
