The perception lab is recruiting students to serve as research assistants, starting winter term 2020. We will be conducting research on the cognitive processes supporting speech perception in difficult listening conditions and the mechanisms underlying audiovisual integration. Research assistants will read and become familiar with the literature on this topic, attend weekly lab meetings to discuss research, run participants, assist with data analysis and interpretation, and prepare posters for academic conferences or manuscripts. RAs enroll in 2 credits of Psych 300 with an expectation of 6-8 hours of work per week (3-4 hours per credit). Note that because this is a credited (not paid) position, it does not affect work study hours. If you are a highly motivated student with a background and interest in psychology, cognitive science, linguistics, or computer science and can make at least a two-term commitment to working in the lab, I’d love to hear from you! Fill out an application before October 25th by 5pm. Contact Julia Strand if you have questions (jstrand).
