The Family Involvement Laboratory IS LOOKING FOR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS for the fall semester (two-semester commitment preferred).
Fall Research Assistants will sign up for 3 credits and attend a class 2-4pm on Wednesdays in the fall semester titled "Cultural Influences on Parenting Practices" led by Dr. Natasha Cabrera (Graded).
Students will serve as research assistants for the Family Involvement Lab, which is currently conducting a study on Latino immigrant mothers, fathers, & children. The goal of the study is to understand how mothers’ & fathers' values, goals, & beliefs influence their children’s social skills & academic competencies.
Bilingual (Spanish-English) research assistants are preferred. Research assistants will conduct short literature reviews; participate in data collection; recruit parents; schedule visits; & data entry. This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in pursuing graduate work in the social sciences. Depending on interest & skill-level, there will be opportunities to write honors theses and participate in papers for publication.
