As of September 1st, we will be hiring a Research Assistant for a minimum of three days a week to work on the project of Dr. Larissa Mendoza Straffon “Visual signs as cognitive tools: phylogeny and ontogeny” funded by the Templeton Organization. We offer a 1 year contract with possibility of extension. The project is based at the Comparative Psychology Unit at Leiden University and is hosted by the Comparative Psychology and Affective Neuroscience Lab (CoPAN).
The RA will carry out studies on comparative psychology related to the perception and production of marks by great apes and humans, and be involved in the publication and presentation of the results. Their background can be in (biological/ cognitive) archaeology, biology, or psychology.
The vacancy will soon appear on the formal website of Leiden University, where you can also apply. But if you have any questions in the meantime, you can contact Dr. Straffon: firstname.lastname@example.org.
