Early Cognitive Development Lab


Research Assistants

The ECDL is always on the lookout for volunteer research assistants to help make our lab go! We are looking for hard-working, motivated, and organized individuals to join our research team. Working in the ECDL provides a unique opportunity to learn more about the research process and gain valuable hands-on research experience. Because of the training involved in working with children, we typically prefer a minimum two-term commitment from our volunteers.
