The Language Development and Parenting Lab is directed by Dr. Meredith Rowe, within the department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology (HDQM) in the College of Education. We study language acquisition in infants and young children. Specifically, we’re interested in how children learn language through social interactions with their parents, and how different cultural and linguistic backgrounds influence early language development.
Our lab is searching for an undergraduate research assistant (RA) for the Fall Semester, 2013. Preference will be given to applicants who are able to work for two semesters. The position entails 8 hours of work per week, including a one-hour weekly team lab meeting. Duties are largely based around coding DVDs of parent-child interactions, and other responsibilities may include transcription, data entry, scheduling participants for our studies, and working with study participants. RAs are compensated with class credit for one course per semester.
If interested, please send a resume and an unofficial copy of your transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 30th.
