Research Opportunity in the Child Health Behavior Lab (HABLAB)

Posted by Tim on January 14, 2019 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 Summer & Fall 2019. 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 include: assisting with material 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. 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, with preference given to students who can commit to at least two semesters.

Interested students can apply by submitting an application and a resume to ubhablab@gmail.com, using “Student research assistant application 2019” as the subject of the email. Applications may be downloaded at http://ubhablab.weebly.com/students. We anticipate reviewing applications during February, with an initial round of interviews planned for March 2019.
