    • 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.

    • Summer 2018 Research Assistants Needed for the TACoS Study!

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.
