EconomicsRichard Steckel, Economics,
The broad goals of economic history are to understand how, when, and why modern developed countries became rich and healthy, and whether changes in inequality were part of the process.  Research in the field generally requires intensive data-gathering and analysis.  This project has two aspects:  (1) study of the contribution of the farm tractor to American economic development from 1920 to 1954, and (2) measuring inequality and living standards of American slaves and post-emancipation blacks.
The first project involves analysis of micro-level census data (both population and agricultural censuses), and the second has several aspects, including compilation of Jim Crow laws.  Both projects include some library work.
Prefer students who are familiar with data analysis packages, especially STATA.  Knowledge of bibliographic software, such as EndNote, would be useful.
Prefer advanced undergraduates with a minimum GPA of 3.5 and some training in quantitative methods.  An interest in history would be useful as would some training in Economics.

CommunicationKelly Garrett, Communication
This project will amplify the efforts of people to bring out the best in other people in online conversations, and will make it easier for people to find high quality online conversations. There are numerous concerns about the tone and content of online conversations on public affairs at the present time. At its best, everyday online debate can lead people to consider alternative perspectives and even change their minds. This happens in environments where people may disagree, but where they try to inform and convince each other rather than simply yell at each other. The first goal of the research is to create automated classifiers to measure the quality of everyday online political talk. Classifiers will estimate the quality of online conversations about news articles in public venues such as Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and the comments sections of news pages. A Conversation Finder tool (a website and a browser extension) will use the automated classifiers to recommend, in real time, venues where particular news articles are being discussed and where the quality scores are high. The second goal of the research is to create a Conversation Coach that helps the general public to improve the quality of conversation spaces they participate in, by helping them craft messages that directly contribute to quality and that indirectly inspire others. It will include a Message Assistant that extracts elements from conversations in order to help people craft messages and a Message Impact Assessor that predicts the likely impact of a draft message on the quality metrics for subsequent conversations.

Quality of online conversations will be measured in terms of a variety of dimensions that communication scholars have articulated as desirable. Training data for the classifiers will be collected from conversation participants in addition to trained coders, and experiments will be conducted to determine the most effective sequence of requests to make of conversation participants in order to maximize motivation to contribute. Creation of the Conversation Recommender will lead to several intellectual contributions, including: (1) developing computational assists that help human raters achieve high inter-rater reliability; (2) identifying methods to motivate conversation participants to act as raters; (3) architecting neural-network based classifiers that achieve high prediction accuracy when trained using the collected ratings as training data; (4) developing techniques to make the classifiers produce interpretable results (explanations). Creation of the Conversation Coach will lead to two intellectual contributions: (1) identifying parts of conversations that can be automatically extracted and that writers find relevant and useful when composing messages; (2) architecting a predictive model that accurately estimates the impact of messages on subsequent conversation quality.
We are seeking research assistants to help with content analysis of online discussions in a variety of venues, including Reddit, Twitter, and the comments section of major news sites. Our goal is to use an existing coding system to assess several conversation qualities, including civility, diversity of viewpoints, and coherence.  RAs will begin by spending several hours coding practice documents and meeting with other coders to ensure that assessments are consistent across the group.  RAs also will have the opportunity to help improve the codebook.  Once training is complete, RAs will code discussion threads independently.  Please note that the material to be coded is unfiltered, taken from the source websites verbatim.  It is almost certain that coders will encounter some content expressing ideas and language that they find offensive.
Attentive to detail; strong organizational skills; ability to self-manage and make steady progress on long-term projects without constant supervision.

Sociology and CriminologyRyan King, Sociology
This research will examine whether and how criminal records affect access to rental housing. Establishing secure and stable housing can be difficult, especially after incarceration, but it is particularly important to the reentry process.  Having stable housing can reduce the likelihood of new convictions and readmission to prison for new crime; yet the importance of stable housing goes beyond reentry and recidivism, as having a home is a key determinant of both physical and mental health. Despite new guidelines from the Department of Housing and Urban Development on the use of criminal background checks in housing, little is known about how landlords and public housing authorities use criminal histories in making admissions or rental decisions.  This project aims to contribute to our understanding of how having a criminal record has restrict or shape opportunities with respect to housing.
Research assistants will inventory rental housing advertisements and complete data entry tasks, assist with data collection of a field experiment, code public housing authorities’ admissions policies, and more. Students will need to attend training sessions for all research activities and will be expected to complete most work in the Sociology Department.  Students will be expected to have good organization and communication skills.

Molecular BiologyTsonwin Hai, Department of Biological Chemistry and Pharmacology, College of Medicine
Current research in the lab investigates how stress affects breast cancer metastasis. An emerging picture in cancer biology is that chemotherapy can paradoxically exacerbate cancer metastasis. The lab is dissecting the molecular mechanisms behind this intriguing but devastating effect of chemotherapy. The main hypothesis is that chemotherapy brings about this effect via inducting stress response and modulating immune system.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to investigate the molecular bases of diseases using a variety of techniques including molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, and imaging tools. The model systems include transgenic mice and tissue culture cells. The relevance of the findings from mouse models will be tested using clinical samples from patients.
Students will carry out routine jobs in the lab and will be trained to perform experiments on their own. The expectation is that the students will learn the basics of scientific research and will present in lab meetings. Students will have a chance to present their work as posters and become a co-author in papers. Techniques include mouse work, cell culture work, immunostaining, and RT-PCR. Previous experience is helpful but not required.
Candidates are expected to be self-motivated, driven, responsible, reliable, hard-working, curios, attention to details, with logical mind, and ability to learn.

Economic History, History of Discrimination, Data CollectionTrevon D. Logan, Department of Economics
 A successful candidate will be joining an international research team of economists studying the dynamics of discrimination in public accommodations in the pre-Civil Rights era. We are looking for a dedicated and meticulous research assistant to undertake the digitization of U.S. Census of Business records.

Our main object of study is the Green Books. During the Jim Crow era finding overnight accommodations, purchasing gasoline, and having a meal on the road posed major challenges for African American motorists, particularly in the American South. The Green Books provided a listing of establishments across the U.S. that would serve African American customers. The aim of this project is to combine information from the Green Book directories and the U.S. Census of Business to create a measure of "access to services" in different towns/counties that allows for comparison across time and space of the discrimination facing African Americans. 

The central task of this position will be the careful digitization of establishment counts by county using published versions of the U.S. Census of Business. The goal is to create a database that has the listing of establishments, by type (eating places, accommodations, service stations) for all counties in the United States.  Later this information will be combined with Green Books location information to gain a better understanding of the economic and historical forces behind the decision of an establishment to serve African Americans or discriminate against them.

Stem cell, Bio-Engineering,  Tumor MicroenviornmentLalit Sehgal
Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is characterized by uniformed presentation of t (11, 14) and has been a model to investigate the driving signaling pathways of cancer. The clinical course of MCL even with current targeted therapy shows consistent high rates of relapsed with chemoresistant MCL. Recent evidences suggest that interaction between tumor cells and the underlying stromal cells in tissue microenvironments, such as the bone marrow and other secondary lymphoid organs, may cause progression of the disease by promoting cell survival, growth, and drug resistance. Major clinical therapeutic drugs eliminate the bulk of MCL cells but the remaining tumor cells may hide or are supported by stromal cells in tissue microenvironment. Thus the tumors cells that have poor drug response may trigger the relapse of the disease by interacting with the tissue microenvironment. The tumor cells send and receive various signals from nursing cells that may initiate a signaling cascade to trigger cell survival and confer drug-resistance. Since stem cells in hematologic cancer were first described in 2000, we have known that stem cell might play an important role in relapse and chemoresistance; however we have not developed strategy to for effective clinical cancer therapy.  The tumor stem cells have the ability to reproduce complete tumor pathology, thus they are responsible for cancer recurrence and also confer resistance to chemotherapy. Based on this concept, we hypothesize that the cross talk between tumor s or tumor stem cells and their microenvironment may influence the progression of the disease by promoting cell survival, growth, and drug resistance. So we would like to ask specific questions such as, what factors contribute to tumor cell survival in presence of its tissue micro-environment.

I have two ongoing research projects. One investigates autobiographical memory retrieval in young children of depressed and nondepressed mothers, and one examines the development of emotional and cognitive regulation in preschool-age children and the influence of maternal depression and parenting. For more information about these projects, please go to http://u.osu.edu/feng.88/current-research-projects/
Students will be involved in one of several tasks:
1. Conducting interviews with mothers of young children
2. Administering observational tasks to children and mothers (female students only)
3. Reviewing and assigning codes to video-taped mother-child interactions
4. Screening and processing electrocardiogram (ECG) data
Students need to enroll in HDFS 3193 for two semesters and at least 2 credit hours per semester (for positions #1 & 2, we prefer that students take 3 credits per semester). One credit hour translates to 3 hours of work per week. There is some flexibility with regards to when students complete those hours each week.
To be considered as an interviewer/experimenter (#1 &2), interpersonal skills are required

Social NeuroscienceDylan Wagner
Dr. Dylan Wagner is seeking undergraduate students to volunteer (academic credit possible) 6-12 hours per week on a project in social cognitive neuroscience. Dr. Wagner’s lab (http://wagner-lab.com) examines how people construct representations of self and other identity (their personalities, preferences, and emotions).  In order to study these topics, we often use popular fiction and movies as a way of getting people to learn about different characters and their identities. A separate topic of research focuses on examining the behavioral and neural mechanisms of self-regulation and its failure. In particular, we are interested in how people's subjective perceptions of the reward value of temptations is related to individual differences and situational contexts. We use a combination of behavioral and brain imaging techniques (i.e., fMRI) and are working towards developing models of how cognitive representations of identities and rewards are encoded in the brain.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in designing and collecting research data and joining lab meetings. For projects related to person perception, you may be asked to carefully annotate different popular Hollywood movies and television shows for use in experiments. Additional tasks include administering experiments, scheduling participants, entering and analyzing data, annotating movies and television shows for content, and helping prepare scientific data for publication. Outstanding, longer-term research assistants will have the opportunity to learn how to design and analyze fMRI experiments and may be invited to co-author scientific publications and/or posters for scientific meetings or conduct honors related research.
GPA minimum of 3.0, Eager to learn, Knowledge of programming (Python, R, Matlab) or strong interest in learning to program, Minimum 3 semester commitment

We are conducting a four-arm Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) to assess the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy for the inclusion of romantic partners and support figures during the bariatric surgery process (i.e. weight loss surgery), from pre-surgery to two months post-surgery. The overall objective of this study is to provide preliminary evidence for including partners/support figures in the pre- and post-surgery process, including the subsequent impact on post-surgery patient and support figure/partner behavior change and weight loss, relationship outcomes, and exploration of barriers to support.figure/partner involvement.
We are looking for undergraduates to help with recruiting participants, tracking participants across time, possibly interviewing participants (pending training), and data entry
