An undergraduate research assistant works with faculty and graduate students on research projects they direct. You may be asked to conduct literature reviews, help create research materials, assist with data collection, assist with data analysis, and other tasks. Some undergraduate research assistants with advanced skills and competencies may be able to conduct their own research under the supervision of a faculty member.
If accepted as a research assistant, you may be asked to enroll in Psy-B492. Generally it is expected that for each hour you enroll, you will be asked to perform three hours of research assistant duties, per week.
Research Assistants must be highly conscientious and committed to completing assigned research tasks and responsibilities. A research assistantship is highly rewarding and critical for acceptance into high quality graduate and professional programs.
Research assistantships are also highly competitive. Not all applicants may be accepted.
