Research Opportunity in Child Health and Behavior Lab

Posted by Tim on May 9, 2017 in Academics, Honors Experiences, Networking, Research Information and Opportunities

The Child Health and Behavior Lab (HABLAB) at the University of Buffalo is looking for undergraduate students to assist with research studies during the Fall 2017 semester. These research experiences would be under the leadership of Dr. Stephanie Anzman-Frasca, who conducts laboratory- and community-based studies in the area of children’s eating behavior and obesity prevention. More information about Dr. Anzman-Frasca’s work is available here: https://medicine.buffalo.edu/faculty/profile.html?ubit=safrasca

Responsibilities of student research assistants will include: assisting with material preparation, entering data, screening potential participants for inclusion in studies, and helping staff in the implementation of the study design. It is anticipated that students will have the opportunity to work directly with participants, including parents and young children, in laboratory studies. Students may be asked to commit to evenings or weekends to work with participants; however, we are also looking for students who are available during mornings/afternoons. All incoming research assistants must be able to commit to at least 10 hours of research per week for at least two semesters.

Interested students can apply by submitting an application and a resume to ubhablab@gmail.com, using “Student research assistant application” as the subject of the email. Applications may be downloaded at http://ubhablab.weebly.com/students. We will review applications this summer with interviews planned for August 2017.
