About Us

Welcome to the Cognition & Education Laboratory, located in the Department of Education at Dartmouth College.

Our research addresses theoretical issues in the cognitive psychology of learning and memory that also have practical implications for education. We are especially interested in investigating study strategies and instructional manipulations that enhance the durability and/or efficiency of learning.

Opportunities for Students

We are currently looking to hire a computer programmer to design a website for running online experiments. The website would need to be compatible with Amazon Mechanical Turk, and be able to: (i) present stimuli (e.g., text, pictures) for specific durations, (ii) record participants responses (keyboard, mouse), (iii) and automatically send out email reminders to participants to login for follow-up sessions. The programmer should be proficient in PHP, Javascript, MySQL, and CSS, and ideally be knowledgeable about jQuery or Mootools. Please contact me () if you are a Dartmouth student interested in the job. The payment rate is $15-25/hr.

Prospective grad students in Dartmouth's Graduate Program in Psychological and Brain Sciences that are interested in working with me are encouraged to contact me via email () and browse the website for additional information about my lab and its research.

I am also interested in working with enthusiastic and dedicated Dartmouth undergraduates that are looking to gain research experience in cognitive psychology. If you think the research in my lab is a good fit for you, feel free to inquire about potential openings for research assistants.

Students that are interested in participating in research studies in the lab should sign up here. (You will be paid for your time.)
