The Family Involvement Laboratory IS LOOKING FOR BILINGUAL (Spanish/English) UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS for the fall (3 Credits).
Students will serve as research assistants for the Family Involvement Lab, which is currently conducting a study on Latino immigrant mothers, fathers, & children. The goal of the study is to understand how mothers’ & fathers' values, goals, & beliefs influence their children’s social skills & academic competencies.
Research assistants will code mother-child and father-child play and reading interactions, conduct short literature reviews; participate in data collection; recruit parents; schedule visits; & data entry. This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in pursuing graduate work in the social sciences. Depending on interest & skill-level, there will be opportunities to write honors theses and participate in papers for publication.
If interested please send your resume & unofficial transcript to Jenessa Malin (email@example.com) (you can find the lab at http://www.popcenter.umd.edu/filab)
