Research Assistant Positions - Family Involvement Lab

The Family Involvement Laboratory is looking for bilingual  (Spanish/English) undergraduate research assistants for the fall (3 Credits). The Family Involvement Lab is currently conducting a study on Latino immigrant mothers, fathers, and children 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, collect and enter data, recruit parents, and schedule visits. This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in pursuing graduate work in the social sciences. Depending on interest and 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 at jlmalin@umd.edu.
