Interested in joining our team?


We are always looking for enthusiastic students to help with our research.

Graduate Students

Graduate students from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology are invited to conduct research through the lab. This means designing a project in collaboration with Dr. Chalik and seeing the project through from its design to its publication. Graduate students will supervise undergraduate research assistants, attend weekly lab meetings, collect data, and perform any other tasks involved in making sure their project is going smoothly. If you'd like to discuss starting a project in the lab, contact Dr. Chalik directly.

Honors Students

Undergraduate students who wish to graduate with honors in Psychology can complete their honors thesis through the lab. Honors students design their own studies in collaboration with Dr. Chalik and conduct these studies themselves. Honors students are expected to fulfill the general lab tasks expected of all undergraduate research assistants, as well as to write a scientific paper that will serve as their senior thesis. If you'd like to do an honors thesis through the lab, contact Dr. Chalik directly.

Research Assistants

Research assistants work on a voluntary or for-credit basis, and get experience with every stage of the research process - study design, stimulus construction, data collection, data analysis, and interpretation. Research assistants are expected to attend a weekly lab meeting and to devote 6-10 hours per week to the lab, including some Sunday hours. If you are interested in joining the lab, either contact Dr. Chalik directly, or fill out the form below.
