Undergraduate Research Assistant Positions
Are you looking to gain some valuable research experience next semester? Emory undergraduate students can apply for research assistant (RA) positions in the Bauer Memory at Emory Lab. This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in cognition and child development research!

Each semester, research assistants will work approximately nine hours per week for three credits and will be involved in all phases of the psychology research enterprise: (1) gain exposure to methods used in behavioral, eye-tracking, and event-related potential studies; (2) work with postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, lab staff, and other undergraduates; (3) interact with parents, children, siblings, and adults participants; (4) prepare materials for study sessions; and (5) transcribe child interviews and learn to enter and code data.

To Apply

We typically accept applications in August for the fall semester, in November for the spring semester, and in April for summer positions. Please contact Adna Jaganjac at if you have any questions.

UPDATE: The Fall 2017 application for general research assistants is now open. The following projects are currently accepting applications: knowledge integration, spatial rotation, and narrative transcription. Emory undergraduate students interested in joining the Bauer Lab for any of these positions should click on the link below and fill out the application.

We are also accepting applications for a scheduler. A lab assistant in the Bauer Memory Development Lab is primarily responsible for recruiting and scheduling families to participate in ongoing studies in the lab.
