Lab Manager Position @ University of California Santa Cruz

The Diversity in Development Lab, directed by Dr. Hyesung Grace Hwang, investigates socio-cognitive development starting from infancy. The lab is especially interested in examining how infants and children start to develop biases about people based on race, language, and accent, and how their social environment - their families, schools, neighborhoods, cultures, and more - influence these conceptions. We are also interested in investigating children's emerging conception of politics, equity, and activism. We examine these processes in racially, linguistically, and culturally diverse populations and use a variety of interdisciplinary methods across psychology, neuroscience (e.g., EEG), physiology, and sociology. Please see for more information about my research.

The lab manager will be responsible for coordinating and conducting research, recruiting and scheduling infant and child participants, supervising undergraduate research assistants, and carrying out administrative duties. The lab manager will also have opportunities to be involved in preparing conference presentations, writing journal manuscripts, and starting their own research projects in collaboration with Dr. Hwang and her students. We are dedicated to supporting and mentoring the next generation of scholars from diverse backgrounds.  

This position is ideal for individuals who would like to gain research skills and pursue doctoral or graduate programs in the future. Candidates should have a demonstrated interest in developmental psychology and previous research experience with infants and/or children.
