Michigan Twins Project

We are looking for undergraduate Research Assistants to assist with preparing recruitment materials, tracking participation in the registry, and entering data received from families.

The Michigan Twins Project (MTP) and Children of Twins Project (COT) compose a large, population-based twin registry consisting of twins between the ages of 3-55 born in Michigan. Adult twins and parents of twin children complete and return a brief questionnaire that assesses family composition and health status. The unique relationship twins share allows for a better understanding of the environmental, genetic and neurobiological factors that influence psychological functioning and health. Because of this, data from the MTP and COT will contribute to research on a variety of conditions that carry significant consequences for individual and public health. These related studies are directed by Drs. S. Alexandra Burt and Kelly Klump.

Qualifications

Applicants should have a minimum GPA of 3.2 and be able to commit to working 10 hours in the lab for at least one year (Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters).
