If you are interested in being an undergraduate research assistant (290 or volunteer), please read the following information:
Primary responsibilities of research assistants are coding conversational speech data, preparing stimuli for experiments and running subjects. Many of our experiments involve the use of a remote eye-tracker, which monitors the gaze of subjects as they complete the experiment. As a research assistant in the Conversation Lab, you will be trained on how to use the eye-tracker, as well as a number of other techniques for psychological research. The lab is located in the Psychology Building. A minimum commitment of 6-8 hours/ week is required. A set schedule for the semester is required, but there is flexibility in when you can schedule your hours for.
