Information for Students

The best way to join the Cornell Infant Studies lab as an undergraduate research assistant would be to first take one of Prof Casasola's classes (Research Methods HD382 or Connecting Social, emotional and Cognitive Development HD 336). Many of our RAs have taken either both or one of these classes and approached Prof Casasola with a desire to get involved in infant research. At the same time, we also have several freshmen and sophomores who have heard of the lab by word-of- mouth (or while taking one of the basic Human Development classes, such as HD 115) and who demonstrate a keen interest in infant development and experimental research. If you meet the above criteria, please email Prof Casasola at mc272@cornell.edu with information about the classes you’ve taken, your research background, and your academic and professional interests.
