From our colleagues at NYU:
Two developmental psychology labs at New York University are seeking outstanding volunteer research assistants for this summer. Applications will be accepted and considered on a rolling basis through the end of April. These are separate positions, so please consider applying to one or both.
NYU Infant Cognition and Communication Lab
The NYU Infant Cognition and Communication Lab, led by Dr. Athena Vouloumanos, explores what infants understand about language and communication. We are currently looking for students to help us with our studies using eye tracking to explore early markers for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
RAs will run studies, schedule parents to bring their infants into the lab, transfer videos, code data, and discuss new research in the field at weekly lab meetings. Positions require between 10 and 20 hours a week, from the end of May to the end of July.
You can find the application under Research Assistants here.
Conceptual Development and Social Cognition Lab
The Conceptual Development and Social Cognition lab, led by Dr. Marjorie Rhodes, investigates how children use categories to learn about the world around them. We also explore how social categorization influences children’s understanding of human social behavior.
RAs will recruit and run studies at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan or the American Museum of Natural History, participate in weekly lab meetings, code data, and help to create new study materials. Positions require between 10 and 20 hours a week, from the end of May through August, depending on availability.
