Undergraduate Research Assistants

Interested in joining our team?

Getting research experience in a lab (or multiple labs) is important for pursuing a career in psychology. Positions in our lab are on a volunteer basis or you can receive course credit via Psychology 31498. We are looking for students who can commit to a minimum of 6 to 8 hrs/week for at least two consecutive semesters.  You do not need previous research experience. Everyone starts somewhere and the earlier you get involved, the better. We are looking for students who are eager to learn about the research process in psychology, have an ability to work well with other people, are conscientious, and can make the time commitment. Responsibilities may include helping with literature reviews, collecting data via various methods (experiment, survey, online), coding open-ended data, and entering and analyzing data.
