Interested in Cognitive Development Research?

The Cognition, Action, & Psychophysiology (C.A.P.) Lab is looking for motivated graduate and undergraduate students to participate in all aspects of research. Our lab is very interested in welcoming enthusiastic and intelligent students who want to join us in the investigation of cognitive development and corresponding brain-behavior associations. Specifically, we seek students who are hard working, outgoing, and excited to interact with infants/children and their families. However, if you would be more comfortable working “behind the scenes,” especially with psychophysiological data, we offer these types of opportunities as well. Any prior experience in research or in working with children and parents is a plus.

Our lab is a busy one! As a new team member, you will be trained in one or more of the following areas: recruitment of new infants/children; data collection; data coding (behavioral and/or psychophysiological); data entry; sibling monitoring; data analysis and interpretation; literature searches. There are also opportunities to present our lab's findings at professional conferences. If you are interested in joining our lab, please email Dr. Cuevas at We are located on the UConn Waterbury Campus, but there are some opportunities for students at the Storrs Campus.
