Improving Learning in Chemistry

  • Department: Chemistry
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: Our research focuses on improving chemistry student learning through eye-tracking studies and laboratory instructional design. Chemistry learning takes place at the interface between macroscopic chemical phenomena, submicroscopic interactions, and symbolic representations. This triplet nature of chemistry creates a critical role for visual representations when teaching chemistry. Chemistry students are learning the language of chemistry while integrating their prior knowledge with the concepts being studied.
    We currently have three areas of interest: 1) Investigating the impact of visual feedback on student attention to chemically relevant features in order to develop critical thinking in using eye-tracking generated visual stimuli; 2) Studying the lag between visual or audio cues and student attention when engaging with chemistry learning materials (videos, lectures, and instructor-led study sessions); 3) The impact of a multi-modality laboratory instructional strategy on student efficacy, technical skills, and meaningful learning.
  • Primary Duties: Student researcher will assist with a complete Chemistry Education Research study which includes: participant recruitment, experimental design, data collection/analysis, and discussion of the study limitations/implications. Students without CITI training will begin the project by learning about the IRB process and completing CITI training.

  • Primary Duties: This project will connect students to Columbia Law School's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law. The undergraduate researcher will work on issues concerning the implementation of climate change-related regulations.
  • Requirements: Ability to research on-line databases.
  • Time commitment: 35 hours minimum / week, 6 weeks

Spherical harmonics and Black holes

  • Department: Mathematics
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: Spherical harmonics are the eigenfunctions of the Laplacian operator on the sphere, and they are crucial objects in harmonic analysis and the study of PDEs. When considering the eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on the ellipsoids, one obtains the oblate spheroidal harmonics, for which the spherical symmetry is broken and new geometrical properties arise. Those functions play an important role in the study of black holes, since the stability of the most general Kerr black hole involves the study of those. Nevertheless, a clear understanding of their geometrical properties as related to the ones of the black hole is still missing.
  • Primary Duties: The student will learn the fundamentals about spherical harmonics and oblate spheroidal harmonics, as well as the basics of the black hole geometry. The goal is to relate the geometrical properties of the spheroidal harmonics to those appearing in the study of black hole solutions.
  • Requirements: Calculus.
  • Time commitment: 35 hours minimum / week, 6 weeks

The Last Time We Danced: Musical Life Before Mourning

  • Department: English and Comparative Literature, Center for the Study of Ethnicity & Race
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: This project is an experimental recovery of Black life in the wake of spectacular state and vigilante violence. Traffic stops and other chance encounters are prefaced by the music that the subjects (such as Sandra Bland and Daunte Wright) enjoyed before their fateful ends. As creative nonfiction, the book will attend to the musical choices made and joys experienced by Black women and men on the brink in order to reveal conditions of power and their refusal.
  • Primary Duties: Internet searches (newspapers, social media, blogs, protest organizations) for obituaries, commentary, opinion pieces, family announcements, hashtags, dirges; listening to/for music referencing the deceased; preliminary archival searches and requests for car and stereo manuals, police reports, trial transcripts; collecting and organizing music industry information from music charts, radio play, etc; secondary source curation and annotated bibliographies.
  • Requirements: Interest in Black/Ethnic Studies and music; previous research experience; knowledge of contemporary social movements and the ability to read music a plus.
  • Time commitment: 35 hours minimum / week, 6-8 weeks

How the human brain forms memories and makes decisions

  • Department: Psychology and Zuckerman Institute
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: Our lab studies the human mind and brain. We have several ongoing projects exploring how memories are formed and how we use memory to develop preferences and to make decisions. The lab uses a variety of methods to study this: human brain imaging (functional MRI), behavioral assessments with specifically designed computer games, in lab measures of eye-tracking, and online tests of behavior and preferences.
  • Primary Duties: There are opportunities for students to contribute to various aspects of the projects by working together with graduate students and postdocs in the lab. Students will help gather stimuli for experimental tasks, will be taught how to help with data analysis, and will be brought in to a conversation that involves critical reading of scientific articles and exploration of new ideas.
  • Requirements: There are no requirements. We are looking for highly motivated students who are willing to join our team. Prior course work in Psychology or Neuroscience is an advantage but not a requirement.
  • Time commitment: 35 hours minimum / week, 6-10 weeks

The Making and Knowing Project: Secrets of Craft and Nature

  • Department: Center for Science and Society
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: The Making and Knowing Project (M&K) is a collaborative research and teaching initiative of the Center for Science and Society that studies the intersections of art and science. In 2020, M&K published a critical digital edition of BnF Ms. Fr. 640, an anonymous 16th-century technical-artisanal manuscript, https://edition640.makingandknowing.org/. The Edition provides insight into the material, technical, and intellectual world of the Renaissance as well as into the manuscript's hundreds of entries that detail recipes and first-hand observations about a wide range of artisanal activities such as metal casting, painting, and medicine. M&K is now working towards a research and teaching companion to the Edition to provide behind-the-scenes information and tools about its creation to others. Some preliminary work is already available through M&K's Sandbox, https://cu-mkp.github.io/sandbox/, which also publishes data analysis and visualization of the manuscript. Additionally, there is some ongoing maintenance work related to the Edition that requires research and finalization.
  • Primary Duties: A student researcher would work on preparing materials (such as activity sheets, syllabi, and case studies) for the research and teaching companion to the Edition as well as preparing unpublished multimedia research essays for publication in the Edition. They will brainstorm and, time permitting, carry out a public-facing project on the manuscript to be published as part of the Sandbox. If the student has data science or programming experience, they may also develop and undertake a data management or analysis project for the Sandbox.
  • Requirements: Interest in M&K's research. Prior research and/or programming experience is a plus. In the application, please provide information about computer skills and any digital/programming experience (e.g., proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite, Google Drive, and, if applicable, programming languages, Github, etc.)
  • Time commitment: 35 hours minimum / week, 6 -10 weeks

Searching for Counterparts to Recent Black Hole-Black Hole Mergers

  • Department: Astronomy
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: The gravitational wave observatories (LIGO and Virgo) are now routinely detecting gravitational waves from merging massive Black Hole-Black Hole binaries. In order to do all the astrophysics that is possible in principle with these data (cosmology, physics of merging holes, etc.), it is necessary to determine where (in which galaxy) the gravitational wave source is located. Currently, the only way of doing that is by detecting light emitted at the time the gravitational waves are emitted. We have developed a speculative technique for searching for X-ray emission from gravitational wave sources, which we want to apply to the recently detected signals (one year of data with LIGO and Virgo).
  • Primary Duties: The project entails setting up some simple software to display X-ray images from NASA's archives, inspecting them, and then running search algorithms we have developed this year and following the leads. This coming Summer, we hope to get access to a full-sky X-ray survey, that will probably have a better than 50% chance of catching a merger signal.
  • Requirements: An interest in black hole-black hole mergers

Acute Care and Emergency Referral Systems (ACERS) Project

  • Department: Public Health
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: The Acute Care and Emergency Referral Systems (ACERS) project is a USAID-funded implementation research program focused on improving maternal and newborn health outcomes in underserved communities of Ghana. The goal of this project is to leverage implementation science to shape evidence-based national policies and strategies on emergency referral and emergency obstetric and newborn care (EmONC) by addressing the Three Delays in care – delays in seeking, reaching, and receiving high quality definitive care. ACERS seeks to assess implementation outcomes, including the feasibility, acceptability and appropriateness of a set of novel community-based, pre-facility, and facility-based interventions. The project is implemented under the direction of the Ghana Health Service and consortium partners including Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health sidHARTe – Strengthening Emergency Systems Program, University of Ghana Regional Institute for Population Studies, National Ambulance Service, and Catholic Relief Services.
  • Primary Duties: Anticipated activities that the student will support include: IRB modifications; documentation of implementation strategies, protocols and lessons learned; development of written documentation related to research results; development of communication material for technical and/or non-technical audiences; development of mixed methods research tools; and analysis of routine project data.
  • Requirements: Flexibility, proactivity, and cultural humility; Strong writing and communication skills; A willingness to learn new skills; General understanding of public health and health equity is desirable; Experience with quantitative or qualitative software is desirable; Experience with tool development and/ or data analysis is desirable; Familiarity with low resource settings is desirable.
  • Time commitment: 35 hours minimum / week, 8-12 weeks
  • Location: Ghana-based or remote (in the US) are possible. (Please indicate your location preference in your application.)

Social & Moral Cognition Lab

  • Department: Psychology
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: The Social & Moral Cognition Lab studies children's and adults' moral judgments. Some of our questions fall squarely within the realm of moral cognition, intersecting with philosophy. For example, one line of work asks how children and adults conceptualize the goal of punishment, while another probes the extent to which children want to learn about why others perform moral and immoral actions. We are also especially interested in examining moral cognition in two contexts. First, we look at the links between moral and religious cognition. We do so in part because, in national polls, many United States residents have indicated that it isn't possible to be a good person unless one believes in God -- so studying how people conceptualize religion can give us insight into more basic moral processes. Currently, we are working on several projects in this research line, including studies regarding how children respond to peers who are trying to learn about religion as compared with other topics such as science and the extent to which participants expect God to view people as deeply good. Second, we look at the links between moral cognition and the criminal legal system. We do so in part because people often think that those involved in the legal system are bad people, not just people who have done bad things, so this is a context where we can learn more about when, why, and how people attribute immorality to people rather than behaviors. Currently, we are working on several projects in this research line, including studies regarding how children and adults perceive incarcerated individuals and the consequences of these perceptions.
  • Primary Duties: Responsibilities include recruiting participants, collecting and coding data, and participating in weekly lab meetings. Student researchers may also have the opportunity to perform tasks such as designing study materials and conducting literature searches.
  • Requirements: No required technical skills, but students should be reliable and friendly, and should work well with others.

Social Histories of African American Lesbian and Gay Elders

  • Department: Sociology
  • Status: This project is no longer accepting applications.
  • Description: This research is part of a book project on the sociocultural history of African American LGBTQ people.
  • Primary Duties: The student researcher would conduct library work, learning how to code data using qualitative software, and reading and providing summaries of relevant research. Students interested in sociology, LGBTQ populations, social histories and archival research, qualitative research methods, and stories about old people "back in the day" would be interested in this project.
  • Requirements: Past research experience is a plus.

The American Diva

  • Department: Center for the Study of Ethnicity & Race
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: This research relates to a book project that will chronicle the impact of divas on American culture in the decades from the civil rights era to the present. Part critical reflection and lyric essay, part memoir and manifesto, part elegy and ode, the book explores how divas have shaped our thinking about feminism, free market principles, and freedom struggles during the last 50 years. Primary Duties: include conducting and organizing preliminary research on the role “divas” play in representations and marketing of girl culture during the last 20 years.
  • Requirements: Interest in the topic.

Partisan Polarization and "Culture War" Issues

  • Department: Political Science
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: Over the last generation partisan polarization on “culture war” issues has become a defining feature of American politics, with the Democratic Party embracing social liberalism and the Republican Party embracing social conservatism. This was not always the case; for much of the 20th century, social issues such as abortion rights and LGBT rights played virtually no role in politics. Today, of course, they are central to partisan conflict. This transformation, despite its importance, is not well understood. In fact, there is little consensus among political scientists as to its timing, sequence, or causes. Using a variety of data sources, particularly a newly compiled set of historic state-party platforms, we aim to answer a number of crucial questions: Where and when did the partisan divide begin on abortion and gay and lesbian rights? Which party ``moved first"? Was there a critical moment, or was position change incremental? Do abortion and gay rights follow the same pattern? While it is possible that the rise of social issues took place entirely on the national stage, then later spread to state and local politics, we set out to explore the possibility that these debates took place first at the state level.
  • Primary Duties: A student researcher would assist with data collection and analysis. The data we will be collecting this summer include state legislative roll call votes on relevant bills, local media cover of abortion and LGBT rights, and debates within the political parties about position taking on these issues. We will focus on four case study states---California, Texas, Minnesota, and Massachusetts---during the 1970s and late 1960s.
  • Requirements: No specialized skills are necessary.

Ambedkar Initiative

  • Department: History, Human Rights
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: B. R. Ambedkar is arguably one of Columbia University’s most illustrious alumni, and a democratic thinker and constitutional lawyer who had enormous impact in shaping India, the world’s largest democracy. As is well known, Ambedkar came to Columbia University in July 1913 to start a doctoral program in Political Science. He graduated in 1915 with a Masters degree, and got his doctorate from Columbia in 1927 after having studied with some of the great figures of interwar American thought including John Dewey. Columbia University awarded Ambedkar with an honorary LL.D. in 1952. This project links Columbia with the anti-caste legacy of Ambedkar, and seeks to explore genealogies of radical democracy outside the North Atlantic. Learn more about the Ambedkar Initiative.
  • Primary Duties: Research will focus on collections in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library and Burke Library that contain uncatalogued correspondence relating to B.R. Ambedkar's time as a student at Columbia.
  • Requirements: The project is ideal for anyone with an interest in digital humanities, archival practice, American intellectual history, South Asian culture/history/politics. Student will be expected to engage with texts, join weekly or bi-weekly meetings, and take on other responsibilities as requested.

Studying the Brains of Memory Experts

  • Department: Psychology
  • Status: Accepting Applications
  • Description: Although most of us are quite poor at remembering lists of information like a series of random words or the order of a deck of playing cards, some people have trained to use mnemonic systems that allow them to quickly memorize tens or hundreds of items in only minutes. One of the main techniques, called the "Method of Loci" or "Memory Palace" technique, involves converting information into mental images that are placed at specific locations in an imagined spatial map. We hypothesize that this technique is so effective because it engages the brain's episodic memory systems in a way that is similar to our everyday autobiographical memories.
  • Primary Duties: We will be collecting fMRI data (at the Zuckerman Institute at 125th street) of memory experts using these techniques, as well as people who are learning to use these techniques for the first time. The researcher would assist in running these neuroimaging scans and in organizing the data for use in analysis pipelines, and processing collected data to produce quantitative measures of how memory performance varies across people and over time.
  • Requirements: The project is ideal for anyone with an interest in the field of Psychology.
