Interested in gaining experience in research?
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 and academic skills.Research assistants will code/transcribe mother-child and father-child play and reading interactions, conduct short literature reviews; participate in data collection; recruit parents; schedule visits; & enter data. 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.
Interested students should send their unofficial transcript and resume to Jenessa Malin and firstname.lastname@example.org. For additional information on our lab, see our website at www.popcenter.umd.edu/filab
