Fall Research Opportunity in Family Involvement Lab

Interested in gaining experience in research?

The Family Involvement Laboratory IS LOOKING FOR BILINGUAL (Spanish/English) UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS for the fall (3 Credits).

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 For additional information on our lab, see our website at
