PROSPECTIVE UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS
RA duties include, but is not limited to: 1) community outreach, collaborating with groups that focus on peer-victimization issues, recruitment, and conducting clinically oriented interviews; 2) interfacing with participants while acquiring fMRI, eye-tracking, and self-report data, and conducting subsequent analysis; 3) developing stimuli for experiments, writing scripts for stimulus presentation and data capture, and improving on current analytic tools used to interpret data.
Initial duties will focus heavily on lab set-up. This includes preparation of institutional review board applications, research to facilitate equipment purchases, setting up surveys on Qualtrics, generating advertising material, and management of lab space.
This is a unique opportunity for competent, highly self-motivated, meticulous, and conscientious students with an interest in science to get in on the ‘ground floor’ of a research lab. Successful RAs may have the chance to pursue independent research, making this an ideal position for those considering grad school.
