Students: Available Research Opportunities

Parenting In Context often works one-on-one with student research assistants for academic credit or experience. In the past, students have co-authored research briefs on a variety of topics such as autism, fatherhood, and the effects of divorce. Students have also analyzed qualitative and quantitative data for our annual reports. 

Due to increasing interest, we are in the process of expanding the work of student research assistants on the Parenting In Context project. In the future, students will be able to tailor their experience to develop skills in writing literature reviews, analyzing qualitative or quantitative data, developing surveys, creating web content and other graphic documents to illustrate key findings, and conducting key informational interviews or focus groups. 

If you are currently a student at Cornell University and have an interest in any of these areas please contact Eliza Cook at
