I am looking for undergraduate research assistants starting in the Spring semester of the 2015/2016 academic year.
In my main line of work, I am investigating how different kinds of learning (learning based on relationships that we experience in the environment vs. more abstract, language-based, learning) contribute to the formation of attitudes, especially relatively automatic and uncontrollable implicit attitudes, towards people and things. Online data collection for this project has been ongoing since January 2015 and is expected to continue throughout the academic year. In addition to my main line of work, I have secondary interests in quantitative methods and metacognition.
Harvard undergraduates may work in the lab as volunteers, in exchange for course credit, or possibly in exchange for payment. Undergraduates from other universities may work in the lab as volunteers.
How to express interest
Interested students should send a cover letter (stating why and on which project you would like to work with me), an up-to-date CV/resume, and a short academic writing sample (of about 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
