Undergraduate Research Assistants

We are typically always looking for undergraduate research assistants to join the lab. Responsibilities for research assistants include: designing experiments and materials, running experiment sessions, coding and analyzing data, and participating in lab meetings. Undergraduate students can work in the lab in a variety of capacities, including: academic credit (independent study), UROP undergraduate fellowships, senior honors, and volunteer. We are particularly interested in students who can commit to at least two semesters in the lab, and post-bacs are encouraged to apply as well.

If you are interested in joining the lab, please email the following to Sean (

  1. A brief statement indicating your interests, what kind of research experience you are seeking, what capacity you would like to work in (work study, academic credit, etc.), approximately how many hours/wk you are available, and when you would be available to start. 
  2. Your resume, including any applicable references.
  3. Your unofficial transcript. RAs typically have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. (Note: First year students do not need to include a transcript)
