Centre for Cognitive Development

The Centre for Cognitive Development studies the origins of language and abstract thought in young children.

We’re looking for volunteer Research Assistants who love working with kids! 

You would recruit participants, test 2 – 10 year-old children in your assigned study, attend weekly lab meetings, and do background reading.

We expect a commitment of 10h/week for two semesters.

Don’t love working with kids?

That’s cool. We’re also looking for volunteers to work with adults.

You would be assigned to one of our projects investigating how language interacts with thought. You’d recruit and test adult subjects, learn about psychophysics, MATLAB, and computational modeling.

We (still) expect a commitment of 10h/week for two semesters.

Interested?

Awesome! Email us: ccd.joinus@ubc.ca

We’re accepting applications on a rolling basis.
