We are seeking 2-3 research assistants to work on studies exploring the processes by which humans perceive and mentally represent spatial relationships in the world around them. Research assistants can earn 1-3 hours of credit toward the psychology major under the auspices of the course Psychology 3591. To earn 3 credits we ask that students work 4 hours per week on the project. The work can involve running subjects or higher-level activities such as writing computer code and performing data analysis. We also ask that students attend lab meetings 1-2 times per month. Please contact Dr. Stephen Dopkins (dopkins@gwu.edu) if you are interested or have questions about any of this.
