|Research Assistant / Programmer Needed
The Voice Physiology Lab in the Dept. of Speech and Hearing Sciences is seeking a part-time research assistant who is a programmer capable of modifying existing programs to facilitate the collection, storage, back-up, and analysis of research data. Programs are run on Apple Macintosh computers and include:
Applicants with C++ programming experience preferred, but expertise using every application listed is not expected. Pay is $11/hr., (or more, depending on experience) for 8-12 hours/week during the school year, with more hours possible in the summer months. Programming needs will be ongoing because new research experiments are begun each semester.
If interested, please contact Dr. Theresa Burnett, 855-3886 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

|In the Information Processing Lab, we study human memory. We are interested in answering questions like: "How do we remember a past event?", "How do we remember general knowledge?", and "How are memories represented?".
The lab is run by Richard M. Shiffrin, the most recent Rumelhart Award winner for lifetime contributions to theorizing about cognition.
We are interested in attracting top-notch undergraduates to the lab in order to teach them laboratory methods, data analysis, computer programming skills, and current theories of memory.
You will begin by learning how a cutting-edge research lab is run, and you will learn about the theories we currently developing and testing. As one progresses in the lab, opportunities will arise that will allow you to learn how to design and program your own experiments.

Adam Sanborn (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Christoph Weidemann (email@example.com)
|Undergraduate Research Assistant (URA) Position
Chen Yu's Computational Cognition and Learning Lab is looking for motivated undergraduates interested in assisting graduate students in experimental psychology research during the spring semester (or earlier).
Our lab studies human development and learning through both empirical studies and computational models. We are particularly interested in how language is grounded in sensorimotor experience and how language development depends on complex interactions among brain, body and environment. To learn more, please visit the lab website.
If you are interested in learning how to conduct research, and you have approximately 8-12 hours per week, we're looking for you. You can volunteer or work for class credit during your first semester, with the possibility of being asked to continue as a paid URA after this training semester. No prior lab experience is necessary, but a 3.5 or higher GPA is required.
If you're considering graduate school, this is a great opportunity to see what working in a lab is really like. You will attend weekly lab meetings, run subjects in experiments, score and analyze data, and help design new experiments.
For more information, please contact Krystal Klein or Chen Yu. Please include the following information:
Year in School (freshman, sophomore, etc)
Number of hours available to work and tentative time blocks available
Major (declared or undeclared)
Psychology/Cognitive Science classes (taken or will be taking)
