Sexual Orientation, Human Development, and Family Lives Lab
Our research focuses on issues related to sexual orientation, human development, and family lives. How does sexual orientation influence family formation and family lives? How is this affected by the legal and public policy climates in which children, youth, and families live?
Several studies are underway now. We welcome the involvement of motivated, organized, efficient, and friendly undergraduate students as part of our research team. Research assistants usually work closely with a graduate student, and their duties may include reading original research studies, preparing materials for new studies, transcribing and coding data, and assisting in data analysis. There are also opportunities for advanced RAs to develop their own projects.
