Working in the lab, you will interact directly with families, helping to run studies with infants, toddlers, and kindergartners.
You’ll learn about our current research projects and gain familiarity with study methods and analysis techniques commonly used by developmental psychologists. You’ll also take part in a reading group, exploring contemporary issues in developmental, social, and cognitive psychology more broadly.
