Both undergraduate and graduate students are central members of my lab, and my favorite part of my job is having the opportunity to collaborate with them. My lab often recruits new students to join us (though only at specific points during the year). See below for details about each opportunity.
Every semester, I recruit undergraduate students to work in the lab through the PSY 390 credit program. This is a great opportunity to learn about the scientific process and get some research experience while also earning course credit! If you think you might find social psychology research interesting, a great first step is to take a class like PSY 240: Introduction to Social Psychology. That said, I recognize that students have a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and I welcome all applications even if you haven’t had a chance to take a lot of psychology courses yet. To apply, please email me (Nate) and request an application. Applications to work in the lab during the Fall 2023 semester have closed. We will plan to recruit for the Spring 2024 semester starting in late October 2023.
I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to mentor graduate students as they train in social psychology, and I enthusiastically welcome applications from all prospective students, especially those from historically excluded or marginalized social groups and backgrounds. Although not yet official, I plan to recruit at least one student during the 2023-2024 admissions cycle to start in Fall 2024. You can learn more about our PhD program on the social psychology program’s website. Applications are due annually on Dec. 1st. (No GRE required.)
