The Department of Psychology at Princeton University is seeking a postdoctoral or more senior research associate to work in the Princeton Baby Lab with Dr. Casey Lew-Williams. The postdoc will be supported by an NIH grant on bilingualism in infants and toddlers, and will collaborate with Dr. Krista Byers-Heinlein at Concordia University in Montreal. In addition to studying the complexities of language input and language processing for this project, the postdoc will develop their own studies on early learning.

They must also have evidence of publication-quality graduate research. Knowledge of statistical and programming software (e.g., R, Matlab) is preferred. Conversational proficiency in Spanish is also preferred but not required. Please contact Casey Lew-Williams ([email protected]) with any questions. The start date will be between July 1, 2019 and January 1, 2020. The appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal based on funding and satisfactory performance.
