Job Description:
We are recruiting students to work in our lab for Summer 2013 and the 2013-2014 school year.
The Developmental Neuropsychology Lab is conducting several projects focused on sensory processing.

We are looking for research assistants to assist with these projects and gain valuable experience in all phases of our research: research design, running participants, data coding, and interpretation.
We are seeking students who have excellent interpersonal/clinical skills (for working with children and families), attention to detail, and the ability to work with a research team. Students with backgrounds/interests in Psychology or Brain & Cognitive Sciences as well as other fields (e.g., Linguistics, Neuroscience) are encouraged to apply. Students can register for PSY 351 or PSY 352 (Research in Developmental Neuropsychology), or PSY 391 (Independent Study) to receive credit for their work during the academic year. Work over the summer is paid. All research is supervised by Dr. Loisa Bennetto.
We are particularly interested in students who are able to make a 2-semester commitment. If you are interested in joining our research team, please email a copy of your resume and transcript (unofficial from UR ACCESS is OK; please include your GPA) to the contact listed below.
