Prospective Graduate Students

Our lab is looking for enthusiastic and intelligent new graduate students who want to join us in investigating the development of basic and higher-order cognitive processing (e.g., learning, memory, executive functions) during infancy and early childhood. Ideal candidates are students who are interested in studying cognition, working with infants/children, and have research experience. Students will help collect data and present current data at 2-3 conferences each year.
