We are analyzing audio recordings made by parents who read picture books to their children at home. We transcribe the recordings to understand the language children experience in their home environment. The work can be completed remotely. Research assistants will learn about language development and how we can use naturalistic data to better understand children’s knowledge and language development.
For this project, we are looking for students with an appreciation for detail, critical thinking, responsible independent time management, and responsive communication. Curiosity, collaboration and respectful discussion with other project members, and initiative in problem-solving are valued and encouraged. Research assistants in our lab are expected to contribute nine hours of lab work each week and are asked to make at least a two-semester commitment.
We are seeking undergraduates with at least one year of school left (freshman, sophomores, or juniors) to join our team. To apply if you are interested, please send your resume (or a CV) to the project lead, Anastasia Stoops (firstname.lastname@example.org) and complete the application form
