We seek motivated students interested in psychology, cognitive science, linguistics, or related areas, but welcome applicants from all backgrounds. Volunteers run experiments with children at preschools, museums, and in the lab; enter and code data using various computer software; recruit families via phone, email, and at external sites; design stimuli for new studies; and participate in weekly lab meetings. Students have the opportunity to acquire new skills and learn about cognitive development while working under the mentorship of a graduate student, postdoc, or lab coordinator. 

Academic quarter volunteers commit to 10 hours per week.  We ask for a minimum 2-quarter commitment, with the possibility of completing a Psych 199 (with a 12 hours/week commitment) in the second quarter.

Summer volunteers commit to 12 hours per week. Please submit your application online at the link below.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

Students will be contacted whenever a position matching their skills and interests become available.

Please email ladlabcoordinator@ucsd.edu with any questions.
