Due to physical distancing measures the University is currently taking in response to COVID-19, the CHAMPS project is currently on hold. As a result, we will only be accepting undergraduate research assistants for Opportunity 1 (requiring a Fall & Winter commitment) at this time. We plan to resume data collection as soon as the campus opens again, at which point Opportunities 2 and 3 will be available again. Thank you for your understanding.

Project AHEAD (Advancing Health and Education for Adolescent Development) investigates how gender-based socialization during the adolescent years (e.g., gender roles, gender stereotypes) shapes adolescent adjustment outcomes, particularly mental/emotional health and academic well-being. We will be collecting two waves of longitudinal data on a national sample of adolescents between Fall 2019 and Winter 2020. RAs are being sought to begin as early as Summer 2019. Potential applicants are encouraged to have taken Research Methods and Statistics. Prior research experience is encouraged, but not required.

In the CEC, we aim to understand how we make sense of the world around us. We investigate the development of social cognition and emotion understanding in infancy and childhood by assessing infants' emotion attributions, false-belief understanding, imitation/emulation, and false-emotion attributions using a multi-method approach, which includes non-verbal measures, behavioral paradigms, violation-of-expectation paradigms, and eye-tracking. We also investigate the role of context in emotion perception, especially as it pertains to how facial expressions of emotion are categorized and visually processed. Potential applicants are encouraged to have taken Research Methods and Statistics. Prior research experience is encouraged, but not required.

The American Families of Faith research project is a national research project involving in-depth, qualitative interviews with nearly 300 religious couple and families (500+ individuals) from all eight regions of the United States. We interview "exemplary" families with strong marriages and learn how they have overcome challenges in life, marriage, and parenting--and how their faith has helped them do so.
