Undergraduate Research Opportunity: UChicago's Self and Social Judgment Lab

Undergraduate research opportunity in social psychology

The Self and Social Judgment Lab, directed by Prof. Nick Epley, is looking for an interested and dedicated research assistant to start in the fall quarter.  Research in the Lab includes the experimental study of social cognition, perspective taking, and intuitive judgment.  

The research assistant's primary responsibilities include all aspects of the research process, from preparing and designing experimental materials to running laboratory and field experiments, from entering and coding data to actively collaborating with researchers on projects.  Studies are conducted in the Decision Research Lab on Campus, in the Chicago Research Lab downtown, across Campus, at the Museum of Science & Industry, and sometimes in public spaces; they range from simple surveys to computer studies to elaborate experimental designs.  More information about the kind of research conducted in the Lab can be found here: faculty.chicagobooth.edu/nicholas.epley/

RA's are expected to work ~8-12 hours a week, though hours will fluctuate depending on the testing schedule.  This would be a good opportunity for those interested in social psychology and considering pursuing a graduate degree.  Chicago undergrads and work-study students are preferred.
