Working in a research laboratory is a great way to get first-hand knowledge of what it takes to design and execute research studies. Working as a research assistant is also a great way to distinguish yourself from other applicants when applying for graduate and professional schools. You’ll have the opportunity to be mentored by graduate students and faculty and learn more about the field of Psychology.
How to Apply
The Psychology Department has a new system to connect prospective undergraduate lab assistants like you with available opportunities. This system is for any undergraduate interested in working in a research lab by registering for the Directed Research course (PSYC 4800) and/or CURO research.
To apply, complete this brief Qualtrics survey assessing your areas of interest, weekly availability, and academic achievement. Surveys are due December 1st for consideration for spring semesters and July 15th for fall semesters. After you’ve submitted your survey, we will contact you about potential research opportunities
