The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Louisville is seeking talented and motivated graduate students to apply for graduate training in our Cognition and Development and Vision and Hearing programs. Specifically, the following three lab groups are seeking applicants:
The Knowledge in Development (KID) Lab is co-directed by Drs. Judith Danovitch and Nicholaus Noles. The KID Lab studies a diverse set of questions related to children’s social-cognitive development, including the influence of technology on children’s learning, the development of economic behaviors, how children evaluate their knowledge and the knowledge of others, and the relationship between labeling, categorization, and induction. https://louisville.edu/psychology/danovitch/lab
The Infant Cognition Lab, directed by Dr. Cara Cashon, studies infant cognition and perception, focusing on topics such as face perception, language development, and causal perception in typically-developing babies and in infants with Williams Syndrome. https://louisville.edu/psychology/cashon/lab
The Parent-Child Interaction and Language Learning Laboratory, directed by Dr. Maria Kondaurova, investigates how characteristics of parent-child interaction shape the development of linguistic skills in infants and children with normal hearing and hearing loss. Dr. Kondaurova’s research focuses on normal-hearing and hearing-impaired children who receive assistive devices such as cochlear implants and/or hearing aids, and makes use of a variety of behavior techniques, including filming play and reading sessions, parent interview, and the analysis of speech perception and production data. https://louisville.edu/psychology/kondaurova/lab-home
We provide a competitive funding package for graduate students and Louisville is a vibrant, affordable city with many opportunities for recreation and community involvement.
