If you are interest in learning more about research in social psychology, consider joining our team. We are always excited to hear from undergrads who are fully of passion and curiosity like us! Being a research assistant is a serious commitment with high standards. But no worries even if you do not have any previous research experience! We try to offer many opportunities for research assistants to advance their skills as researchers, and you will receive comprehensive training for your lab duties. Typical research assistant responsibilities include, but not limited to, recruiting and running participants for experiment and field studies, data entry, and coding qualitative data.
