Do you have an interest in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and/or perception? Are you looking for research experience and perhaps authorship on a poster/article to strengthen your graduate school applications?
The perception lab will periodically recruit students to serve as research assistants. 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).
If you are a highly motivated student with a background 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!
Given the uncertainty of winter 2021, it isn’t clear whether we will recruit for that term or wait until spring.
If you are interested, please fill out the form below and Julia will email you when we are recruiting next.
