Dr. Ellen Peters is a fantastic mentor. Her post docs get invaluable experience with writing successful grant proposals, enjoy opportunities to work on meaningful projects that contribute to theory and solve real world problems, and join a community of inter-disciplinary collaborators.
"I’ve been working in the CAIDe lab for a little over a year now and cannot stress enough how much of a positive experience it has been! The lab offers a very collegial environment where others are happy to share their expertise and provide advice. There are also many opportunities to get involved in research collaborations with other lab members." - Dr. Daniel Chapman
"Working in the CAIDe lab has been an incredibly rewarding experience. The fantastic opportunities for research and professional development, coupled with the collaborative working environment and the strong sense of being part of a dedicated team, create a dynamic atmosphere where innovation flourishes and individual growth is actively nurtured." - Dr. Cathy Slavik
UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT:
WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY BRINGING ON NEW RESEARCH ASSISTANTS, HOWEVER IF THE LAB INTERESTS YOU, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO APPLY.
Research assistants are expected to help with lab responsibilities such as running in person studies, reviewing study materials, and completing the necessary training to perform lab duties. We prefer that research assistants enroll for a minimum of 2 credit hours (6 hours per week), however, will also take volunteer research assistants if the student is involved in a program that funds them in exchange for credit hours. We would also like to have a two-term commitment from our research assistants. It is unlikely that we would have any weekend or night work requirements, though if there were we would give several weeks’ notice before running these studies. Additional involvement in the lab for other projects and undergraduate theses is encouraged, but not required.
Research Assistants are also given the opportunity to learn how to program with Qualtrics and clean and analyze data with R-Studio and SPSS.
"I have been an RA at CAIDe lab for just over a year and I have been fortunate to gain experience with conducting research as a whole and building a solid foundation in the field of science communication and decision making. My time at the lab was initially focused on building my background knowledge and running participants for various ongoing studies, but my focus has since shifted to working on my own independent research project and hopefully contributing novel information to the field." - Mallory Mitchell
