Research assistant opportunity for project on metacognition in Biology courses

Dr. Jessica Santangelo in the Hofstra Biology Department is looking for one or two students (undergrad or grad) to work on a project that examines the relationship between undergraduate student metacognitive skills and success in the introductory biology course series. The student(s) will be trained in coding, a form of qualitative data analysis, and will work closely with Dr. Santangelo to code 200+ student responses. Depending on student interest and motivation, this work could lead to an expansion of the current project into an independent student-led project mentored by Dr. Santangelo. Interested students should be self-motivated, responsible, able to meet deadlines, willing to learn and take constructive feedback, and willing to provide constructive feedback.

If you are interested, please send an email to that includes why you are interested in this opportunity, a current resume or CV, and the names and contact information of two faculty members to serve as references.
