Our lab conducts research on the cognitive processes that support the acquisition and proficient use of a second language (for information about our current projects see our Research page.) Please see below for opportunities to join our lab, either as a volunteer, as an undergraduate research assistant, or by applying to work as a graduate student in our home department.
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
We are always looking for enthusiastic undergraduates who would like to work in the lab with us on new projects. If you are interested in joining our lab, please write a brief email indicating your interest and submit the RA Application to the lab manager, Dalia Garcia (firstname.lastname@example.org). The best time to write is over the summer or a few weeks before a new term begins. There is no requirement to speak a second language yourself. The only requirement is to be interested in gaining research skills and in being part of an interactive lab group!
Graduate Research Opportunities
Partnerships in International Research and Education (PIRE)
UCR is partnering with Penn State on the PIRE (Partnerships in International Research and Education) fellowship to create opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students at UCR to conduct research abroad at our partner sites. For more information on the PIRE fellowship, please see the Center for Language Science’s website about it. Details to come about informational sessions and requirements to participate in this opportunity here at UC-Riverside.
