CPSY 4994 (undergraduate directed research) opportunities

Each semester we seek undergraduate Research Assistants (RAs) to participate in our lab for directed research credit (CPSY 4994) or, occasionally, as volunteers. We’d love to consider you for our team! NOTE: No more spaces are available for Fall 2024. If you are interested in joining the group in Spring 2025, please contact Dr. Karatekin in October.

How to apply

The minimum requirements for Directed Research in this research group are attending weekly research meetings (Mondays 11-12 OR 1:00-2:00 on Zoom in Fall 2024), doing some weekly reading, and an oral presentation.

Next year, we expect to continue conducting research on social and structural determinants of health and health inequities. This research would be a good fit for you if you are interested in learning more about how upstream societal factors affect children’s health and well-being. This research group would not be a good fit for you if you are interested in obtaining hands-on experience with children and families.

If you are interested in joining this research group, please fill out this brief RA application first and e-mail it to Dr. Karatekin (karat004@umn.edu).
