Available Positions

Lab Coordinator

I am currently accepting applications for a one-year, full-time, Lab Coordinator position in the Department of Psychology, beginning in August 2019. The successful applicant will join an NSF-funded laboratory examining the impact of classroom diversity management practices on the experience of women and underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering, and math courses. Candidates must have a bachelor’s degree in psychology, with laboratory experience.  The person accepting this position will assist in all aspects of research being conducted in the Intergroup Studies Laboratory, and will supervise and train students working in the laboratory. Full details can be found here. I will begin reviewing applications May 6th, 2019.

Research Assistants

I am currently accepting applications for students to volunteer in my lab during the Fall 2019 semester! Volunteers must commit to 4 hours per week in the lab (including a 1-hour weekly lab meeting). Check out my current research page to see what projects are currently ongoing in the lab. Volunteering is a great way to get some initial research experience to prepare you for engaging in independent summer research or thesis research later on. It can also supplement your other course experiences in psychology by giving you exposure to a different set of research questions or methodologies.

Fill out an application and email it to me (jegood@davidson.edu) by September 1st!

I may also have grant funding to support summer students in 2020.
