The ID Lab (Identity and Diversity Lab), directed by Dr. Sarah Gaither, in the Psychology and Neuroscience Department at Duke University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate position to begin as early as July 1, 2020. The initial appointment would be for one year, with the possibility to extend for additional years based on performance and continued funding. 

The ID Lab investigates how our diverse social identities and perceptions of others broadly influences one’s behavior in various types of settings across the lifespan. Of particular interest in the current funding period are projects examining the social and health-related impacts stemming from various forms of social identity denial and identity questioning experiences and how contact either early on during development versus later on as a college student with diverse others and experiences with discrimination shapes our own social attitudes and behaviors. 

The Duke ID Lab is committed to the mentorship and training of the next generation of scientists with an emphasis on pushing representation in psychological science. The postdoc would be responsible for designing and running research studies with both adult and child samples, analyzing data, preparing publications and conference presentations, and would serve as a mentor to graduate and undergraduate students. Candidates are expected to have a PhD in a social or behavioral science discipline, including (but not limited to) psychology, sociology, behavioral economics, and public policy, with clear evidence of scholarly activity related to diversity science. The position requires skills in research design, data management and analysis, and written communication to academic and lay audiences. Experience and interest in working with underrepresented and child populations is a must. 

Questions about the position should be emailed to sarah.gaither@duke.edu and additional information about the lab can be found here: https://sites.duke.edu/dukeidlab/
