Apply as an Undergraduate Student

Research Volunteer
Our team includes undergraduate students with a strong background in psychology or neuroscience. Undergraduate students may join the lab as volunteers to gaining experience in a clinical research environment; activities include conducting research sessions, helping to run neuroimaging scans, database management, performing literature reviews, and attending lab meetings. Please know that undergraduate members of the team are expected to commit to at least ten hours per week for at least three academic quarters; this commitment makes it possible to complete the complex training requirements of a clinical neurocognitive research lab.
