Memory Lab RA Application
Thank you for your interest in joining the Human Memory Lab! This application is for an RA position with Sean Stone.
Sean is always accepting applications in the event that a position becomes available.
Once you submit this form it will be sent to Sean. We usually interview prospective RAs toward the end of each quarter to begin the following quarter, so keep in mind that you may not hear back from us for some time. If you have any questions, please email Sean directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will contact you if we are interested in setting up an interview.
Description of Sean's research interest:
The ways in which people learn, remember, socialize, and solve problems have all been profoundly affected by technological innovation. In this relatively new line of research, we are exploring memory dynamics in the context of computers and the Internet, focusing in particular on how people use digital technology as a form of cognitive offloading. Our work has shown that saving old information to a computer can make it easier to learn new information (Storm & Stone, 2015), and that using the Internet to retrieve information can influence a person's tendency to rely on the Internet to retrieve other information (Storm, Stone, & Benjamin, 2016). We look forward to continuing this line of work in many new and interesting directions.
