Research Assistants (RA)

If you are interested in gaining research experience for graduate school or learning more about social psychology, consider becoming a research assistant in the SCIP Lab. Typical research assistant responsibilities include recruiting and running participants in experiments, data entry, and coding video and physiological data. Research assistants receive comprehensive training for their lab duties.

All research assistant positions are volunteer positions

We are currently reviewing RA applications for Fall 2019 and beyond.

Do you want to consider this position an independent study for course credit? *

We need to know what your schedule will be like in the upcoming quarter in order to schedule regular lab meetings and research activities.
Occasionally, data collection opportunities will take place in the evening and on weekends. Would you be able to work during these hours? *
