Join the Lab

Lab meeting, group of people outside.


The success of the MML depends upon the valuable contributions of undergraduate research assistants. Undergraduate research assistants may volunteer, work in exchange for course credit (PSY 492) or complete a capstone/thesis project. Please note that in order to be considered for a capstone/thesis project you must have completed two semesters work experience in the lab. Volunteers are expected to commit at least 3-6 hours per week for at least one semester and attend weekly lab meetings. The lab follows an apprenticeship model and undergraduate researchers work closely with our research team (e.g. lab director, graduate students, other researchers and collaborators). Undergraduate researchers can expect to assist with project design, subject recruitment, data collection, data management and analysis, literature reviews, writing, publication and presentation of results.

If you are interested in joining the lab please complete an online application.
