A social psychology laboratory in the Division of Science, New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit a research assistant or research associate to work on research related to prejudice against women and sexual minorities (LGBTQ+).

The successful applicant will contribute to ongoing projects examining :

  • 1) gender equality backlash, namely, how reminders of women’s progress leads to misogynistic attitudes, endorsement of rape myths, and lack of outrage about men’s violence toward women;
  • 2) predictors of negative attitudes toward gay men, lesbian women, transmen, and transwomen, in an international context;
  • 3) stereotype content of gay men and lesbian women, and its consequences; and

    4) how heteronormativity manifests in gay men and lesbian women’s attitudes and relationship preferences. The candidate will work directly with the Principle Investigator, as well as with post-doctorial researchers and graduate students.

    The ideal candidate would have a Master’s degree in social psychology or closely related field, with an interest in gender and sexual orientation, and a strong background in statistics and data analysis.

    For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, statement of research interests, all in PDF format.
