Prof Brian Nosek


Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Virginia, USA.

Brian Nosek PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. In 2007, he received early career awards from the International Social Cognition Network (ISCON) and the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI). He co-founded Project Implicit ( an Internet-based multi-university collaboration of research and education about implicit cognition. He investigates the gap between values and practices – such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one's intentions and goals.

Professor Nosek spoke at the Gender Summit 3 North America 2013 (GS3NA) about how gender science stereotypes that exist outside of conscious awareness or conscious control may contribute to sex differences in engagement and achievement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. His research shows that implicit gender-science stereotyping is a national indicator of gender (in) equality in science achievement.
