Recruiting Lab Undergrads for Spring 2017

Are you a Georgia Tech undergraduate who is looking to become a research technician for credit, experience, or both? Do you have a passion for working with older adults in the community? Look no further!

The Adult Cognition Lab (ACL) at the Georgia Institute of Technology is recruiting undergraduate research technicians for the fall semester. Students will be able to participate in high-level psychological research in exchange for 1 – 3 credit hours (Research Assistantship) with time commitments dependent on the number of credit hours signed up for.

As an undergraduate research technician with the ACL, you will have the opportunity to gain experience with (but not limited to):

  • Research in aging, memory, metamemory, and intelligence
  • Quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis
  • Statistical analysis (SAS, R, SPSS, etc.)
  • Interview techniques
  • Coordinating participants and sessions

Our current projects are exploring:

  • How university students’ casual reasoning is impacted based on knowledge and thinking styles.
  • How aging affects memory and whether it also affects older adults’ learning strategies and monitoring of memory performance.
  • Assessing older adults’ reported experiences with everyday memory failures, their common memory complaints, and the strategies they use to compensate for age-related changes in memory by conducting interviews.
