Undergraduate research assistants
We seek research assistants who are reliable, conscientious, and
interested in learning about human learning and memory. There is
no requirement for any psychology courses, background, or
knowledge--we provide the information and training necessary for
performing basic responsibilities as a research assistant. Research
assistants have the opportunity to participate and receive training
in the following tasks, based on their own goals and the needs
of the lab:
- Administration of experiments to experimental participants
- Participation in lab meetings and discussions
of experimental rationale, design, and results
- Data scoring
- Data entry
- Data analysis*
- Experimental design*
- Programming of experiments*
- Participation in preparation of talks and
posters for scientific meetings and conferences*
- Design and programming
of computer simulations of human thought processes*
*It is entirely up to the student whether they want to participate and receive
training in tasks marked with an asterisk. Participation in these tasks is absolutely not required,
and we are happy to have research assistants who do not perform these tasks.
Some of these tasks (e.g., those involving programming) require some relevant

Students may earn course credit or serve as volunteers.
