JOIN OUR TEAM
Our undergraduate researchers gain firsthand knowledge about infant learning and development and acquire hands-on experience with every aspect of developmental research—participant recruitment, data collections, data analysis, literature reviews, professional presentations, and peer-reviewed publications. All NYU students present their work at NYU’s Undergraduate Research Conference (URC). Students can also submit presentations to professional conferences, conduct honors theses, and co-author publications.
NYU undergraduates must be able to commit a minimum of two consecutive semesters to the lab. NYU students conduct research by enrolling in two consecutive research courses: “Lab in Infancy Research” and “Tutorial in Infancy Research” (4 credits per semester). Non-NYU undergraduates must be able to commit a minimum of a summer semester or equivalent to the lab. The courses require 12 hours of research per week (see syllabus for more information).

We keep the courses small so that we can provide the best, possible experience to undergraduates. If you are interested, please fill out an application form and we will schedule a time to meet with you in person, give you a tour of the lab, answer your questions about the courses and the research, and help you to determine whether our lab or another lab is the best fit for your time and interests.
