Spring 2019 Research Assistant for Projects on Sport Psychology and Motivation

Dr. Alan Chu is recruiting three to four students to serve as research assistants for four research projects in Spring 2019:

1. Two projects are related to sport motivation and physical/psychological outcomes in high school athletes. Because most of the data has been collected, the main responsibilities for these projects will be data organization, data analysis, and report writing and formatting. Some planning tasks will also be included for ongoing data collection in high schools in the Green Bay area.

2. One project is related to gender and sport, such as how gender is associated with perception of athletes and coaches, as well as the motivational influence on them. This is a new short-term project, so the main responsibilities will be literature review, research design, and potentially data collection.

3. One project is related to human’s need in novelty and its relationship with motivation based on psychosocial and physiological perspectives. This is a new long-term project, so the main responsibilities will be literature review, research design, and some proposal writing.

Any student who has taken a statistics course can apply. Selected students will attend weekly meetings as a part of a lab group and earn 3 credits in Spring 2019. If students who are senior only want to learn about data analysis and writing, there will also be an option of take only 1 or 2 credits. To apply, students should email an unofficial academic transcript and a statement (one page, double-spaced) describing your research experience and project task interests to Dr. Chu (chua@uwgb.edu). Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Chu.
