Undergraduate Opportunities

Undergraduate Research (PSYC 491, PSYC 492-CUE)

Each semester (Spring, Summer, and Fall), we have openings for a number of undergraduate students to be research assistants. Students are expected to come to the lab 10 hours/week for two semesters and will get 3 s.h. of PSYC 401 course credit each semester. As a part of this experience, students will learn about many aspects of conducting research with infants including: recruiting and scheduling participants, testing babies, entering data, running reliabilities, creating stimuli, experimental design, analyzing data, reading articles and literature reviews, and interacting with infants and their families. We look for responsible, hard-working, detail-oriented students who would be good at interacting with the families who participate in research. A 2-semester commitment is a must (2nd semester is contingent on successful performance in the first semester). Research experience looks excellent both on job and graduate school applications.

Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP)

I am happy to mentor students who have been accepted into the UofL Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP)SROP provides undergraduate students, who would like to know more about graduate-level education at the University of Louisville, with a 10-week research experience in a department that offers graduate degrees. These fellowships will be available for University of Louisville students as well as under-served/under-represented student populations from regional colleges and universities. Mentors will provide students with individualized research projects, and the program will provide group seminars on topics related to research and graduate education. This program is open to all graduate programs at the University.  Students should be, preferably, in their sophomore or junior year of study.  For more information about UofL's SROP program and how to apply, click here.

Honors Thesis (PSYC 495, PSYC 496-WR/CUE)

I am available to mentor students for University Honors Senior Thesis or Psychology Honors (PSYC 405 & 406) projects. I enjoy having students work on their Honors' projects in the lab; however, due to the nature of our work, I require that students be in my lab as a PSYC 401 student for at least one semester (two is even better) or as a SROP student before I will consider working with him/her on an Honors project. Thus, if you think you might be interested in having me as your supervisor, please contact me well in advance of your Senior year so that we can get you involved in the lab ahead of time.
