The Building Early Emotion Skills Lab is looking for research assistants to code data about parents' emotion socialization practices with infants, toddlers, and young children. Emotion socialization practices are parenting practices that directly and indirectly teach young children about emotions, such as when and how to express emotions. Specifically, we are coding videotaped parent-toddler interactions and parents' use of mental state language.
We are looking for research assistants to help us code parent-child interaction data from several projects. Research assistants will be trained in all coding protocols. Some protocols require transcription of parent-child interactions prior to coding.
Research assistants have opportunities to attend weekly lab meetings and to present their work at conferences, including MSU's Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum. There are also opportunities to co-author papers.
--GPA of 3.0 or higher --Strong organizational skills --At least 3-5 hours available each week to work in the lab/hours are flexible
