Hi, my name is Dana-Lis and I am a 3rd-year graduate student in the cognitive area working with Ben Storm. My research interests include learning, memory, forgetting, searching for information online, how social media affects behavior and memory, and metacognition (thinking about thinking).
I'm looking for 1-2 motivated research assistants that will be able to onboard quickly to help with data collection and other vital tasks in my little lab group. Some experiences they would get out of this RAship would include learning to read, critique, and present on research articles, actively designing and constructing materials and experiments, running participants (collecting data), coding and analyzing data and lots of other cool research-y things!
The position would be for the Spring of 2023 and be treated like a 5 unit class. There is a possibility to extend the RAship beyond the Spring with or without credit - if both you and me are interested in doing so! I encourage anyone to apply, even if you're not sure whether you are "qualified enough" - the whole class is a skill-building experience and the only thing I'm really looking for is enthusiasm, reliability, and attention to detail. All of the other things, you'll pick up along the way.
