Information for Undergraduate Students

The SAND Lab is currently accepting applications for Research Assistants through May 17th, 2024. 

Information about volunteer research assistant positions in the SAND Lab:

The SAND Lab seeks undergraduate students who are interested in serving as a research assistant for experience OR course credit. 

Research in the SAND Lab is focused on brain and behavior development related to caregiving, stress and emotion in children and teens. This is an excellent fit for individuals with an interest in psychology, neuroscience, pediatrics, data analytics, or a career involving children. The current study we are most focused on involves working with individuals 9-24 years of age who experienced different forms of caregiving as infants.

Research assistants may expect to interact with research participants, collect and analyze data, and with a long-term commitment, may learn more advanced neuroimaging and statistical analysis techniques. We are most interested in research assistants who can start in summer and stay on through the entire academic year for 10 hours a week (including some weekends). Our training process is intensive and thus we request that research assistants only apply if they plan on staying in the lab for 3 or more quarters. If interested, please fill out the form below and email your CV/resume to for more information about the application
