Fall and Spring Opportunities
For Boston College undergraduate students
As a research assistant (RA), responsibilities include participant recruitment, help running studies both in the lab and potentially outdoor spaces, debriefing parents, data entry and video coding. Additionally, RAs will be involved in an informal reading and research group and will gain hands-on experience working with data. Research assistants will work closely with other team members and will be supervised by the Cooperation Lab’s director and lab coordinator.
Anyone motivated and genuinely interested scholar is welcome to volunteer as an RA. We ask that you are able to commit at least 6 hours or more.
