|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 Summer and Fall 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. Some evening/weekend availability is necessary in order 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 Summer on a rolling basis, with a preference for students interested in both Summer and Fall.
