The Early Development and Learning Lab, located in the Center for Brain,
Biology and Behavior (CB3) is currently seeking two to three undergraduate
students to volunteer on the Toddler Sleep Study.  This NIH-funded study is
investigating the relationship between toddlers' naturally occurring sleep
habits, their temperament, and their ability to regulate their emotions and
behaviors.  Undergraduate volunteers will have the opportunity to participate
in all aspects of research, including data collection and entry,
participation in weekly lab meetings, and project development and manuscript
writing.  Volunteers will work with the project coordinator, as well as
experienced graduate and undergraduate students for training in various lab
tasks and data collection procedures.

Undergraduate students must be available to volunteer 7 to 10 hours per week,
including some evenings for home visits.  Experience working with children
and families is a plus.

Please contact Project Coordinator, Amanda Prokasky, at
with questions or for more information.
