Dr. Kurt Gray is recruiting a full-time lab manager for the Mind Perception and Morality Lab, starting in Summer or Fall 2017. The MPM lab studies how people see the minds of others, and how this “mind perception” underlies our most crucial moral judgments. This position is ideal for students interested in gaining more experience prior to applying to graduate school in social psychology, organizational behavior, or similar fields.
The lab manager will be responsible for overseeing the daily research and administrative tasks of the lab. The lab manager’s primary task will be overseeing a multi-year NSF funded project on ethics in the workplace. They will also take care of administrative duties such as completing IRBs, ordering supplies, managing RA schedules, and organizing participant payments. The lab manager will be encouraged to develop their own research lines related to mind perception and/or morality if they so desire.
Applicants must be conscientious and have good attention to detail. They must also like people – this is a social psychology lab, after all! Applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree in psychology or a related field of behavioral science or philosophy. They must also have experience with SPSS, Qualtrics, and Excel. Previous experience with running behavioral studies is a plus.
To apply, please send the following items in .pdf format to Amelia Goranson at firstname.lastname@example.org:
