Student Research Assistants Needed!

Posted by Tim on November 17, 2022 in Academics, Research Information and Opportunities, Student Assistant

Have you thought about seeking some research experience? Do you like working with children? Are you interested in child development, psychology, nutrition, and/or health? 

The Child Health and Behavior Lab (HABLAB) at the University of Buffalo is looking for undergraduate students to assist with research studies during Spring and Summer 2023. 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, and more information about HABLAB is available at http://ubhablab.weebly.com. You can also find HABLAB on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) @ubhablab.

Responsibilities of student research assistants include: assisting with materials preparation, entering data, and helping staff in the implementation of the study design. It is anticipated that students will have the opportunity to work directly with study participants, including parents and children, in laboratory and/or community studies. All incoming research assistants must be able to commit to at least 135 hours of research over the semester (equates to about 10 hours per week), with preference given to students who can commit to at least two semesters. Students may be asked to commit to evenings or weekends to work with participants. For students who spend multiple semesters on the team, independent research projects, conference presentations, and/or thesis projects may be possible.

You don’t need to have prior research experience or be an upperclassman to apply! Interested students can apply by submitting an application and a resume to ubhablab@gmail.com, using “HABLAB student research assistant application 2023” as the subject of the email. Applications may be downloaded at http://ubhablab.weebly.com/students. We are currently filling positions for Spring on a rolling basis, with a preference for students interested in both Spring and Summer.

We prepare our students for careers in social media marketing and our past student assistants have gone on to have incredible experiences. In the last few years alone, our students have secured internships and jobs at global companies such as Hulu, Casper, The Smithsonian Institution and more.

The positions we are hiring for are as follows (see attached job descriptions for details):

Contribute to a Global Health Textbook Before it is Published Job Opportunity

Posted by Tim on August 16, 2018 in Community Announcements, Job Opportunity, Student Assistant, Student Job Opportunities

The Community for Global Health Equity is coordinating the development of a global health textbook written by UB faculty and their local, national, and international partners and published through Springer Publishing Company. The book is intended to highlight the multidisciplinary nature of global health work. Chapters include content focused on many different subject areas including but not limited to refugee health and wellbeing, the exposome, the global child, and antimicrobial resistance.

We need your help to ensure the content is appropriate for future classes of multi-disciplinary, undergraduate students. At the start of the fall semester, we will hire student assistants at a rate of $10.40 per hour to review chapters and provide anonymous feedback to faculty regarding content and writing style (we’ll supply you with a rubric to assist with this review). This is a unique opportunity to influence the quality of a university-level textbook before it hits the shelves. We will compile your feedback by the end of September – you would need to complete this work in one months’ time.

Once we have selected the final group of students, I will reach out to you to complete the necessary paperwork. If you are currently employed or will be employed at the University at Buffalo during the fall semester, please let me know. Student employees cannot work more than 20 hours per week.

Please let me know by Friday, August 17th if you are interested in this opportunity by sending me your name, expected graduation date, degree program, whether or not you have a fall 2018 appointment at UB, and a statement of interest (100 words) to:  jmscates@buffalo.edu. Please note that your interest does not equate with your selection. We have limited spots and would like to select students representing diverse disciplines and backgrounds.

Our group will convene the 2nd week of classes to begin this work. Many thanks for your prompt reply and interest.
