Does language affect the way we think? The research question intrigued scholars in different fields for a long time, but the debate has not settled yet!
In this project, we empirically explore the relation between language and non-linguistic cognition such as attention and memory. Students will be responsible for literature review, setting up experiments, conducting the experiments, and coding the data.
- interest in psychology, linguistics, cultural studies, and cognitive science
- intellectual curiosity and the ability to learn new skills and knowledge independently
- team player who is eager to help others and is not afraid to ask for help
- moderate to advanced communication skills in English
Desirable but not required qualifications:
- able to stay and work on campus for the duration of the PURE Project (but online option is available too)
- research experience in online and in-person psychological experiments
- programming skills in Python and/or other languages
