Professor Howard Kassinove is looking for an assistant to help with data entry and analysis. Our anger management specialists are PhD candidates who see approximately 100 adults per year on campus. We work with various problems of anger and aggression. Some cases are self-referred and others are referred by the Nassau Country Department of Probation. For ethical reasons, we cannot accept a student assistant who is receiving clinical services at Hofstra. We are looking for someone who can give us approximately three hours per week, for at least one year, and who is interested in this kind of clinical problem.

One way to make yourself more competitive for grad school admissions is to present your research at conferences. These presentations can be based on an honors thesis or an independent study, but you can also think about presenting posters based on class projects that you have completed for research methods or your research seminar. If you’re working with professors or grad students on a research project, ask them about the possibility of presenting your work at the upcoming meeting of the Easter Psychological Association. For details about how to submit a proposal, click here and scroll to the bottom of the page (“For acceptance as an Undergraduate Research poster”). The deadline to submit is 5 pm, 12/1.
Dr. Sarah Novak and recent Hofstra graduate John DiMeglio are seeking one or two volunteer research assistants to help with on-going research. The project deals with aspects of social and cognitive psychology, focusing on body image. After training, assistants will be asked to run experimental sessions and assist with data entry. The commitment is roughly 3-5 hours per week, but the hours are flexible. Eligible candidates must have earned a B+ or above in Research Methods and Design (PSY 141). Having taken Social Psychology or Cognitive Psychology is a plus, but not required.
If interested, please send John DiMeglio an email at: JohnDiMeglio7@gmail.com Include in your e-mail: (1) Your class standing (Sophomore, Junior, or Senior) and (2) your GPA in psychology. Please put “Hofstra Research Assistant” in the subject line.
The Family Translational Research Group conducts research on a wide variety of cutting edge topics ranging from (a) how anger, conflict, and family violence affect children’s and adult’s psychological and physical functioning to (b) defining maltreatment in ways that can be reliably used by field workers to (c) understanding how couples’ conflict dynamics relate to violence to (d) furthering our understanding of risk and protective factors for child maltreatment and partner abuse.
We are currently looking for undergraduate and graduate level students who might be looking to gain more experience in the field of psychology by completing an externship with our group. This externship requires a 2 semester commitment and students typically work 12 hours each week. For more details and to view the application, click here.
