Interested in working with our lab?

Partway through each semester, the RISC lab begins looking for rising Juniors or above in psychology and other related majors to join us in the lab. Interns in our lab will focus on a given research track while seeing each step of the research process. Duties include recruiting participants, assisting in stimuli design and creation, running participants, and coding and analyzing data. Interns will also take part in a spatial and cognitive sciences reading group that will provide a deeper understanding of our research.

We ask that our applicants are majors in psychology or related fields, have proficiency in computer skills, and must be reliable. Interns are expected to commit at least 10 hours a week.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please send (a) a cover letter, (b) the completed RISC_Intern_Application2022 and (c) a CV/resume indicating academic and volunteer experiences to Jacob Lader at

There will be announcements of open positions toward the middle of each semester. For summer and fall semester participation, we begin accepting applications in March. For spring semester, applications are collected and reviewed through Winter Break.
