Every Semester: PSYC 290 openings in the Language Acquisition Lab

Every semester, the Language Acquisition Lab seeks responsible, highly motivated students with an interest in language and children to assist with our research projects. We conduct experiments on word learning, sentence processing, and linguistic adaptation in toddlers, preschoolers, and adults. We need students who are interested in learning both about online data collection (e.g., via Zoom appointment) and in-lab data collection. No research experience is required. 

Our lab group is full now for Summer and Fall 2023. But, we recruit new undergraduate assistants in the Language Acquisition Lab every year, separately for the Fall and Spring semesters and for Summer Session II. The best time to apply for Summer and Fall is mid-April (of the preceding semester), and the best time to apply for Spring is in November.

For more information, please see the lab website listed below, or contact us by email.
