Research Assistant Opportunities – Hofstra Psych Department – Spatial Navigation

Dr. Ploran is looking for two undergraduate RAs to work on projects related to spatial navigation. One project will examine the role of mindfulness and attention in navigational behavior, including whether mindfulness training can increase navigational performance. A separate project will examine the extent of spatial memory deficits in patients with lupus. RAs will assist in data collection and analysis, so students should feel comfortable with computers. Preference will be given to sophomores and juniors with GPAs of 3.4 or higher, experience with video game level generators (e.g., Quake) and/or Excel is a definite plus but not required. Email Dr. Ploran a short description of your interest and skills, as well as a sense of how much time you have to dedicate to the project (hours per week).
