The University of Virginia’s Early Development Laboratory, directed by Angeline Lillard, has been cleared to search for a new full-time laboratory coordinator (with a preference to applicants who are interested in staying for at least 2 years) to help with studies of children’s social and cognitive development, particularly focusing on Montessori education and on play. The position entails many aspects of lab management including recruitment, design and running of studies, working with graduate students and post-docs, managing undergraduate research assistants, entering data, overseeing materials and records management, purchasing off grants, interfacing with office personnel, and so on.
Important credentials are the ability to work well with people of a range of ages and backgrounds, creative problem-solving skills, high energy and a strong work ethic, and being extremely well-organized and detail-oriented. Prior child development laboratory experience is expected. To overlap several weeks with the current coordinator, we would like the new hire to begin the week of July 17.
