Fall 2018 Undergraduate Assistants needed for the Language Acquisition Lab
The LA Lab (Language Acquisition Lab) is seeking undergraduate research assistants to help with our research in Fall 2018. Our research explores how children learn words and learn to understand sentences in their native language. We work with children between about 1 and 6 years of age. If you have an interest in language and in early development, this may be the lab for you.
Research assistants will have the opportunity to assist with all aspects of the research, including testing children and adults in experiments, coding children's visual fixations in 'preferential looking' comprehension tasks, transcribing and coding children's speech in language production tasks, and learning to run studies using an automatic eye-tracker. PSYC 290 credit is available.
If you are interested in applying, please go to our website (http://labs.psychology.illinois.edu/lalab/) and click on the "For Students" tab to find an application form. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Cynthia Fisher (email@example.com).

Summer 2018 Research Assistants Needed for the TACoS Study!
The TACoS (Transdiagnostic Affective & Cognitive Systems) Study is seeking undergraduate research assistants to assist with our research study starting for this Summer semester. Our study seeks to understand emotion and behavior in adults with a history of substance abuse and/or aggression.
Research assistants will have the opportunity to assist with screening and scheduling eligible participants, code diagnostic interviews, and run participants in the lab. This study provides undergraduate students with unique opportunities to gain exposure to diagnostic clinical interviews, work with a clinical population, administer cognitive tasks, learn various aspects of EEG methodology (including capping participants). This opportunity may be especially useful for students interested in pursuing clinical psychology. PSYC 290 credit is available.
If you are interested in applying, please contact Michelle Naese (firstname.lastname@example.org).
