UConn KIDS (Kids in Developmental Science) is accepting nominations for PhD graduate student representatives to serve on the KIDS Steering Committee. We are seeking nominations for the selection of 1-2 candidates and welcome nominations from the departments of Psychological Sciences, SLHS, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Human Development and Family Studies, the Neag School of Education, and the School of Nursing. The selected graduate student(s) will serve as a voice and liaison for fellow graduate students across the UCONN KIDS consortium, representing their needs and wishes at UConn KIDS Steering Committee meetings. This is a unique position that will offer both a chance to gain professional experience as a member of a steering committee, and an opportunity to contribute to the growth and direction of the UConn KIDS program. Graduate student representatives will be appointed for a period of one year; the departmental representation across the consortium will be rotated in subsequent years.
Please share your nomination with Lauren Powers, the UConn KIDS Child Research Recruitment Coordinator, by Monday November 27th, 2017. Self-nominations from graduate students are welcomed in additional to nominations from faculty members. Nominees will be required to submit a letter of intent at a later date.
Upon review by the Steering Committee on Wednesday December 6, 2017, nominees will be notified of their status.
