Students will serve as research assistants for the Family Involvement Lab, which is currently conducting a study on Latino immigrant mothers, fathers, & young 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 Catherine Kuhns and firstname.lastname@example.org. For additional information on our lab, see our website at http://www.education.umd.edu/HDQM/labs/filab/
