Roles & Responsibilities
K-Lab uses a pyramidal model of mentorship, which means senior students, typically graduate students with research experience, provide supervision and training to incoming and newer research assistants.
To accrue supervised experience hours to sit for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) exam, graduate students in this lab must commit to an off-site clinical internship experience concomitantly to meet the minimum competencies outlined in the CSUN Supervision Folder.
We use a performance evaluations system that provides research assistants with the expectations of their work in lab as well as ongoing feedback on their efforts.
The experiential opportunities available to students in this lab include, but are not limited to, the following:
Conduct literature reviews
Conduct experimental research in controlled settings
Conduct applied research with community partners
Use direct observation methods for behavioral measurement
Organize and input behavioral data
Graph and interpret the results of single-subject design research
Record and evaluate procedural fidelity
Develop tables and summaries of data
Lead research and training projects and supervise others
Develop and use performance feedback tools
Provide and obtain peer review feedback
Work with the robotics team and program a humanoid robot to simulate client(s)
Provide Behavioral Skills Training (BST) or other empirically supported trainings
Present posters and symposia at professional conferences
Co-author manuscripts to be submitted for publication
Co-author Research with Human Subjects Protocols
Critically evaluate research proposals and research results
Develop and design research projects to extend or enhance current research in the lab
