Posted by Tim on February 3, 2020 in 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 Summer and Fall 2020. 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:, and more information about HABLAB is available at

In Summer 2020, we have exciting opportunities to assist with data collection with children and families in local restaurants as part of our Restaurant Study. In addition, general responsibilities of student research assistants include: assisting with materials preparation, data entry and/or coding, and helping staff in the implementation of the study design. All incoming research assistants must be able to commit to at least 135 hours of research over the semester (equates to about 10-11 hours per week), with preference given to students who can commit to at least two semesters. For upcoming semesters, evening and weekend availability are important. For students who spend multiple semesters on the team, independent research projects, conference presentations, and/or thesis projects are possible.

Interested students can apply by submitting an application and a resume to, using “Student research assistant application 2020” as the subject of the email. Applications may be downloaded at We are currently filling positions on a rolling basis.
