What's Involved?

Good question!

Research assistants in the SEAL Lab are involved in many different aspects of the lab.  Previously, RA's have helped with website design and maintenance, IRB design and drafting, participant recruitment, participant assessment and interaction, data coding/modeling, and other duties as assigned.

This is a great opportunity for lower- and upper-division students to build up research experience before stepping out into the workforce, or into graduate school.
