There are openings for smart, motivated students to work as research assistants on a jury decision making study with Professor Bette L. Bottoms, Ms. Liana Peter-Hagene, and several other undergraduate research assistants beginning immediately and for the following semester, Spring 2016. One study focuses on implications of race and prejudice in decision making. All students will receive Honors College activity credit and departmental research credit. Students who are eligible for federal work study are encouraged to apply.
The research skills and experience gained would be applicable to many other research disciplines. You will have the opportunity to work on research that has direct implications for the justice system and to gain knowledge about the legal system as well as psychology. The primary tasks will involve transcribing videos of group discussions as part of a team.
If you are interested, please complete the application attached and email it to Liana, email@example.com. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis, so please apply soon to receive priority. Thank you!
