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 course credits or for work study 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 adult participants;
  4. prepare materials for study sessions;
  5. transcribe child interviews and learn to enter and code data.

Undergraduate Scheduler Positions

The scheduler position in the Bauer Memory Development Lab is primarily responsible for recruiting and scheduling families to participate in ongoing studies in the lab. The position requires excellent communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills. In addition, general comfort contacting and interacting with people by phone as well as email is essential. Other duties might include data entry, assistance with sessions, and interacting with children. A flexible schedule and a one-year commitment to the position is preferred. This position is ideal for majors in psychology or a related field (NBB, QTM, and others will be considered).

To Apply

We are currently accepting applications until August 27th for research assistant positions for Fall 2023.
