Prospective Research Assistants
Do you want to gain research experience?
We are always looking for motivated undergraduate and post-undergraduate students (post-bacs) wanting to study and research of variety of aspects of the behavioral and social sciences. Much of our research could be of interest to students wishing to pursue graduate work in a variety of fields, such as clinical, developmental, cognitive and social psychology areas, social work, counseling, and medicine. Students in the CAIP Lab receive extensive research and clinical training in diagnostic and treatment protocols for specific psychological conditions in childhood and adolescence, namely social anxiety in teenagers. Students also may receive training in comprehensive and longitudinal assessments of normative psychological phenomena, such as parent-child relationship characteristics, parental monitoring, and parent-child discrepancies in perceptions of everyday events. If you are interested in attaining research experience, please send an email to Dr. Andres De Los Reyes (Lab Director) and the CAIP lab (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a copy of a completed volunteer application (or CV if you are a post-bacs), and Dr. De Los Reyes or a coordinator from the lab will contact you to arrange an appointment to either meet in person or over the phone.
Please note that a minimum 2 semester commitment of 6 hours per week is required, as is availability to assist on assessments conducted over the weekend (NOTE: CAIP Lab makes exceptions for weekend availability based on religious observances). Due to the current ongoing pandemic and to ensure safety for our research assistants, staff and participants, lab activities are taking place virtually .
At the Comprehensive Assessment and Intervention Program (CAIP), we conduct clinic-based research trying to understand the best ways to assess and treat behavioral and emotional problems in children and adolescents.
Dr. Andres De Los Reyes (email@example.com) to arrange for an appointment.
