Are you interested in seeing how a research lab works? Would you like to experience science first-hand? The RETRO lab needs you! Beginning in Summer 2012, we will be running a series of 12 studies and we need a large number of both male and female undergraduate volunteers to serve as research assistants to help with data collection. Training needs to begin immediately.

We are currently seeking motivated undergraduate students
interested in gaining research experience!

As an undergraduate research assistant, you will volunteer 10 hours every week to collect data for these 12 studies. You will receive training on research ethics and how to conduct the experiment. You will interact with participants and collect data. You will also have the opportunity to participate in lab discussions about gaming and science. This is a great opportunity to experience research at a large university first-hand.

No previous experience is required!

Think of this as a training opportunity. We will teach you what you need to know. The skills you will acquire in the lab paired with the experience in data collection will look great on both job and graduate school applications.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Interacting with participants
  • Collecting data
  • Using physiological instruments
  • Participating in lab discussions

What you’ll learn

  • Research ethics
  • How to conduct an experiment
  • How to use an Arrington eye tracker, a BIOPAC, and an Affectiva Q Sensor

Commitment: Volunteer 10 Hours / Week

    I am the new STEMM Coordinator for a new company called Doolittle Institute, a company focused on Research, STEMM education, and collaboration between government, industry, and education. A segment of our company is designing our lab space on the campus of the new STEMM Center in Valparaiso, FL. The STEMM Academy, focusing at the middle school level, will open it’s doors for the first time in August this year. Please view my LinkedIn profile and contact me. Perhaps we can discuss each other’s programs to find out if there are ways we can collaborate our efforts.
