Research Opportunity for Psychology Student
The Center for Healthy Eating and Activity Research (CHEAR) is looking for a junior or senior undergraduate student interested in psychology and obesity. The student will assist in a research project on problem solving skills, parent-child interaction and parenting style in overweight children and their parents who are enrolled in a behavioral weight loss treatment program. The project consists of analyzing video tapes of parents and children performing a problem solving task. The student will learn how to code the videos using a coding schema and will perform the bulk of the coding. Coding would begin this summer and continue through early spring 2014 with a time commitment of 20-30 hours per week over the summer and about 10-20 hours per week during the academic year. CHEAR is a very active and productive obesity research center. In addition to learning qualitative research skills, the student would be exposed to many different aspects of obesity research and would have the potential for authorship on a research paper. This is an excellent project for a student interested in applying to graduate school. This is a volunteer position.
If you are interested, please send a short cover letter and resume or CV to Dr. Dana Patton-Ku at firstname.lastname@example.org.
