The Nebraska Academy for Early Childhood Research has developed a new online resource for faculty and students involved in early childhood research across the University of Nebraska system.
The Student Research Opportunities website enables NU faculty to advertise opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students seeking work experience in early childhood research. Students can browse available positions and filter them by campus location, academic level (i.e., graduate or undergraduate), position type (e.g., assistantship, paid, volunteer) and the age group being researched.
Lisa Knoche, NAECR director, said the website will be mutually beneficial for early childhood researchers and students across the NU system.
“Through this resource, faculty will have an opportunity to identify talented undergraduate and graduate students with interests in early childhood research who will help them pursue innovative studies,” she said. “For students, the website enables them to identify research positions that will benefit their own professional and career objectives.”
Faculty can post opportunities on the input form. Postings automatically expire after six months, or faculty can select a specific expiration date.
