Project Description: 

The Arizona Twin Project explores early biological and environmental risk and resiliency factors for later mental and physical health of children. Under Dr. Lemery-Chalfant, Dr. Doane, and Dr. Davis, undergraduate students learn to use twin studies to separate out the effects of genes and the environments on sleep, emotion, and health outcomes during childhood. We are looking for undergraduate Research Assistants to assist in home visits to collect data, provide phone calls to our participants, and coding projects of the collected data. RAs must be available for 9 hours a week, commit 2 semesters to the lab, minimum 3.2 GPA, and possess high levels of interpersonal interaction skills.
