Research Assistantship in Child Development Across Cultures

Dr. Senzaki is looking for 5 research assistants for Fall 2018.

In our lab, we work with 3- to 7-year-old children and their families, and we conduct cross-cultural studies in human development. In addition to working with children directly through data collection, students will also work on data coding, analyses, and literature review. There are also opportunities for students to present their research.

Students are expected to have a GPA of 3.0 or higher (if it’s slightly less this may be up to discussion) and be comfortable working with young children.

This is a 3-credit course, and you are required to put 9 hours/week.  There are no exams, but you will write a paper at the end of the semester, and you will receivea grade for this course.  I have attached the syllabus I used for this semester, so you can take a look at it to see what requirements are.

Research assistantship (either HUM DEV496 or PSYCH 496) is highly recommended for your major, but does not count toward major requirements. For more information about research assistantship in general, see here

If you’re interested in this, please fill out the attached application document, and email it to me ( by April 3. We will have an interview after that.

If you have any questions feel free to let me know.  thank you again for your interest!
