Interested in becoming involved in the Social Development and Learning Lab?

We hire volunteer and directed study students for each semester.

Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting applications for the fall of 2013.

What will you do?

You would be helping us run studies both at the lab and at various locations like the Boston Commons and the Museum of Science. Other responsibilities include interacting with participants and parents, studying development, and entering data.

What are we looking for?

Responsible, energetic students with a passion for research! All applicants should work well with kids and have a background, or strong interest, in psychology or a related field. For the summer (from the end of May through August), we require a time commitment of two full days a week (9 a.m.–5 p.m.). During the school year, we require a time commitment of 7–10 hours a week and a commitment to the lab for at least two semesters.
