Anyone is welcome to work in the main lab space anytime. Most of the time, research assistants work in the lab (remote work is allowed with Katie's permission), but often they travel to offsite locations (daycares, schools, camps, etc) to run babies or kids in our studies.
Research assistants need special permission from Katie to work remotely. Everyone else (postdocs, grad students, research coordinators, illustrators) can work remotely whenever they want, as long they are being productive and are engaging with the lab on Basecamp.
The lab is open 8am-6pm Monday through Friday. Occasionally, we open 9am-3pm on Saturdays to accommodate families who aren't available during our normal hours.
The lab is closed on university recognized holidays (Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Thursday and Friday, Special Winter Break, including Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Memorial Day) and during Fall and Spring term breaks. During reading days and exams we're open, but students aren't required to work during those times.
