The Conceptual Development Lab at the College of the Holy Cross, directed by Dr. Florencia Anggoro, is seeking a full-time Project Coordinator to work on two IES-funded projects: one on spatial thinking and science learning (with Dr. Benjamin Jee at Worcester State University), the other on early childhood STEM education (with Dr. Martha Cyr at Worcester Polytechnic Institute). This is an exciting opportunity for recent college graduates who are interested in the intersections of cognitive development and education.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to: participant recruitment, training RAs and supervising data collection, data entry and coding, interacting with schools and parents, and overall project management (e.g., IRB protocols and equipment maintenance).
Minimum requirements are a Bachelor’s degree in psychology, cognitive science, or related field with at least one year of research experience, preferably in a developmental research setting. Transportation is required for local travel.
The successful candidate will have outstanding organization and communication skills (both written and spoken), strong problem-solving and analytic skills, and proven reliability and attention to detail. Proficiency with statistical software and video technology is a plus.
The position is a one-year, full-time (35 hrs/week) appointment with benefits. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2016. Interested candidates should send a CV and cover letter (which includes a list of 2 references) to Dr. Florencia Anggoro (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applicants will begin on June 6, 2016 and continue until the position is filled.
