PROSPECTIVE UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS
This is a new lab, so many opportunities are available for the right candidate(s). This includes, 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.
RAs who will be able to make a longer-term commitment to the lab (i.e., 2+ years) are preferred so that they will have maximal opportunities for hands-on involvement in research and preparation to achieve post-baccalaureate goals. However, we are open to taking RAs who cannot necessarily commit to this (e.g., seniors who plan to graduate and do not know their plans yet) in special circumstances, which can be discussed individually.
