Gain Valuable Research Experience for Graduate School The Social and Moral Development Lab is recruiting Research Assistants to work on several exciting projects that involve research with children and adolescents. We are eager to recruit Research Assistants from a range of racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. Our projects involve the origins of prejudice, children’s conceptions of fairness and merit, social exclusion, peer and intergroup relations, stereotyping, and moral judgment. Research Assistants in our lab learn about the process of research, read the literature in developmental psychology, meet with a research group once a week (with the supervising professor), and learn how to collect data from interviews, surveys, and online responses. This opportunity provides valuable preparation for graduate school.
