Get Involved as an Undergraduate
If you have a strong motivation to learn about empirical research and are reliable, with good organizational skills, we'd love to have you join our group. Hands-on experience is the best way to learn about how research works and to get the experience and recommendation letters necessary to pursue an advanced degree in the social sciences.
As a research assistant, you will be an active team member involved in all aspects of an ongoing research project. Because of the amount of training necessary, you should be prepared to commit at least 9 hours per week for at least 2 semesters. Enrolled students can receive course credit. If all this sounds interesting, please contact Emily Butler (email@example.com) to arrange an interview.
