Research Assistant (Part-Time) in Design Cognition (available at UNCC)
A part-time research assistant is being sought to work on coding protocols of designers. The position is available for up to 20 hours/week both during semester and, if desired, over the summer. You will join a team of researchers studying design cognition as part of a number National Science Foundation funded projects. One project is a study on the effects of interruptions on the cognition of software design students as they design. Another is a study of the cognition of high school students as they design. A third is a study on the differences in design cognition of professional and student designers. A background in cognitive science or applied psychology and/or design would be an advantage.
A large number of videos will be recorded, which need to be coded and analyzed using techniques developed by Dr Gero. This is an opportunity to join a multidisciplinary research team on exciting projects.
