"Keeping you in the loop since 2005"

Perception Lab is Recruiting Research Assistants

October 5, 2017

Do you have an interest in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and/or perception? Are you looking for research experience and perhaps authorship on a poster/article to strengthen your graduate school applications?

The Perception Lab (run by Julia Strand) is recruiting students to serve as research assistants, starting Winter Term 2018. We will be conducting research on the cognitive processes supporting speech perception in difficult listening conditions and the mechanisms underlying audiovisual integration. Research assistants will read and become familiar with the literature on this topic, attend weekly lab meetings to discuss research, run participants, assist with data analysis and interpretation, and prepare posters for academic conferences or manuscripts. Research assistants enroll in 2 credits of Psych 300 with an expectation of 6-8 hours of work per week, per credit.

If you are a highly motivated student (all class years welcome!) with some background and interest in psychology, cognitive science, linguistics, or computer science and can make at least a two-term commitment to working in the lab, I’d love to hear from you! 

Fill out an application here. Deadline: Monday, October 30 by 5 pm.

Email Julia Strand with questions.
