The Woodward Lab at the University of Chicago ( is looking to fill the role of Lab Manager starting this spring or summer. This role involves oversight of day-to-day lab operations, outreach to families, recruitment and supervision of undergraduate RAs, and the opportunity to be involved, at many levels, in our ongoing research. Our lab tests infants and children in the laboratory, for example using eye-tracking and EEG methods. We also test infants and children on-line, in synchronous and asynchronous paradigms and much of our current work involves the continued development of those methodologies. The Lab Manager works closely with the PI, postdocs, and doctoral students in the lab.

We study social cognition and social learning in infants and young children. Current projects investigate the origins of social categories and social bias, infants’ understanding of moral and conventional behavior, and the ways in which infants’ experiences in social environments (families, neighborhoods) relates to their social cognitive development.
