Lab Research Aide
If you are a current Stanford student, you may apply to become an aide in the lab for course credit. We take applications for each quarter of the academic year. Aide’s earn 1 unit of course credit for every 3 hours of work in the lab per week (2 or 3 units is usually best for most people). As an aide you would assist in running participants for virtual reality experiments, help in the collection and coding of data for these experiments, and assist the Lab Manager with public tours and general lab tasks.
To apply, please fill out the application form below and send your unofficial transcript to Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtual Reality Intensive Training Seminar (VRITS)
The virtual worlds used here at VHIL have all been programmed by teams of Stanford undergraduates. As part of the seminar you will learn how to develop VR programs and will work directly with researchers on various projects. The workload is roughly equivalent to a 3-unit course (approximately 10 hours per week); however, students receive quarterly stipends instead of course credit. We ask that students commit for the entirety of the academic year.
NOTE: Given many uncertainties as a result of COVID-19, we have adapted our program to work well both in-person and remotely when needed. However, this year we will expect a certain number of hours per week to be spent on-site in the lab unless public health expectations change.
