We don’t always design studies on a giant white board in the hallway, but when we do, we make sure it looks fancy and has lots of arrows.

TheChildLab.com is based in Professor Frank Keil’s lab in the Yale Psychology Department. The lab does research with adults and children, both in person and online. The online research with children is done over video chat. More information is available on the other pages of this website.

During the academic year, Yale undergraduates can get involved in the research process, usually for course credit. Research assistants who work in the lab for more than one semester will typically learn about and be involved in all aspects of the research process, from designing studies, to collecting data, to writing up results.

We're looking for motivated RAs to join TheChildLab research team Fall 2019! The position is 10 hours per week (flexible), for a two semester commitment.

To apply to get involved as an RA, please email the lab manager, Danielle Faulkner, at danielle.faulkner@yale.edu with your resume/CV and a 1-page cover letter describing your interest in the position (including any longterm goals), any relevant skills (such as experience with research and/or children), and any relevant coursework. Danielle is also happy to answer any questions!
