The Perception Lab is looking for student researchers to join our team

15 April 2024

Do you have an interest in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and/or perception? Are you looking for research experience and perhaps authorship on a poster/article to strengthen your graduate school applications? Join our team!

We will be conducting research on the cognitive processes supporting speech perception in difficult listening conditions and the mechanisms underlying audiovisual integration (see our research page for more information). The Perception Lab is also committed to open science practices, so lab time will also be devoted to discussing and learning about topics in meta-science.

Research students will read and become familiar with the literature on these topics, attend weekly lab meetings to discuss research, run participants, assist with data analysis and interpretation, and prepare posters for academic conferences or manuscripts. 

Research students enroll in 2 credits of Psych 300 with an expectation of 6-8 hours of work per week (3-4 hours per credit). Scheduling in the lab is quite flexible; timing for lab meetings and other commitments are determined based on mutual availability.

If you are a highly motivated first year, sophomore, or junior with a background (or interest) in psychology, cognitive science, linguistics, or computer science and can make at least a one-year commitment to working in the lab, please apply! The lab is committed to diversity in all forms, so students from groups that have been historically excluded from science are particularly encouraged to apply.

The deadline to submit applications is 5pm on Thursday April 25. If you have any questions, feel free to contact or any of the current research students.

Submit an application here!
