Seeking Undergraduate Research Assistant to Join Cognitive Control Neurolab

start: 2017-09-18

The Cognitive Control Neurolab, overseen by Dr. Susan Ravizza, is recruiting one undergraduate research assistant to work with graduate student Katelyn Wills on her dissertation project.  This project explores the role of learning and motivation in attention and working memory.  You will primarily be expected to help run participants and collect data for these experiments.  Other responsibilities may include some data handling and coding. 

 

We are seeking students who are conscientious, self-motivated, and eager to learn and develop new skills.  Applicants should be prepared to commit 9 hours a week, including bi-weekly lab meetings on Wednesdays from 5-6 PM, for a minimum of 2 semesters.  A minimum GPA of 3.0 is preferred, and psychology majors interested in pursuing graduate study in cognitive psychology will be given priority.

 

You may work in the lab as a volunteer or for course credit.  Benefits include:

·         Research and lab experience

·         The opportunity to learn new technical skills in programs such as Microsoft Excel, Matlab, and E-Prime

·         One-on-one mentoring from a current graduate student

·         May be eligible to receive a letter of recommendation from Dr. Ravizza. 

 

Please contact Katelyn Wills at willska2@msu.edu for more information and to apply.
