The Crockett Lab <> at Yale University invites
applications for a full-time Research Technician position to begin in late
summer/fall 2018 (start date flexible). We will begin reviewing
applications immediately and continue until the position is filled. We are
looking for applicants interested in applying a computational approach to
studying human morality, emotion, and decision-making and its neural basis.
Our lab uses a range of methods including computational modeling,
functional brain imaging and behavioral experiments online, in the lab and
the field. Some of our current projects are investigating how social media
impacts moral emotions and political behavior; the cognitive and neural
mechanisms of dishonesty, hypocrisy, trust, and social influence; and
social cognition in mental health disorders.

The Research Technician will contribute to all aspects of our lab’s
research, including (1) programming experiments and collecting data for
behavioral, online and fMRI studies; (2) analyzing data using practices
geared toward fully reproducible science (e.g. GitHub, OSF); (3) developing
secure databases for storing behavioral data, neuroimaging data, and big
datasets scraped from social media; and (4) general lab computing support.
The position is an excellent opportunity to gain multidisciplinary research
experience tackling some of society’s most pressing problems, including
incivility, disinformation, political polarization, and mental illness. The
ideal candidate will be interested in ultimately pursuing graduate study in
psychology, neuroscience, data science, or a related field, and will be
able to make a two-year commitment.
