Program description

The Concordia Infant Research Lab, directed by Dr. Krista Byers-Heinlein, is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join our dynamic and friendly lab. The lab is housed in the Psychology Department of Concordia University in Montreal, on the beautiful Loyola Campus. The postdoctoral fellow will be positioned at the forefront of an Open Science revolution in infancy research, a movement which aims to improve the practice of scientific research based on cooperative work and new ways of diffusing knowledge by using digital technologies and collaborative tools. The postdoctoral fellow will take a leadership role in large, international collaborative projects on infant development (i.e., ManyBabies) and conduct meta-science research aimed at improving research and Open Science practice in infant research. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to develop their own research ideas within the context of a research program on early language acquisition and bilingualism, implementing and innovating Open Science practice.

Academic qualifications required

  • PhD in Psychology, Cognitive Science, or a related discipline
  • Excellent computational, statistical, and technical skills (knowledge of R is an asset)
  • Demonstrated commitment to Open Science
  • Interest in human development, particularly in the areas of infancy and bilingual development
  • Excellent organizational and communication skills
