The project is a multi-method investigation of the effects of religious belief and divine attribution on psychological variables such as gratitude, anxiety, and well-being. The aim of the project is better understand the links between religion and well-being, and to examine whether non-religious attributions exert similar effects.

The successful candidate will have diverse duties including the coordination and implementation of data collection, tech support, and data entry/cleaning. In addition to these administrative duties, the postholder will also be required to assist the PI and co-PI with higher-level work, such as literature review, data analysis, and the writing up of results for publication.

Candidates must have or be nearing completion of a 1st class or 2nd class upper degree in psychology or a closely related discipline. Prior experience of conducting psychological research is desirable. Excellent communication, numeracy, and literacy skills are essential. Advanced research and analytic skills (e.g. proficiency with statistical software such as SPSS or R) are also desirable.

This is a full-time position offered for an initial period of one year with a possibility of renewal at the end of the first year. The post is ideally suited to motivated psychology graduates seeking research experience and publication opportunities prior to commencing postgraduate study.

Enquiries should be sent directly to the PI: Dr. Jonathan Ramsay (jonathanramsay@unisim.edu.sg)
