Currently, we do not have open research assistant positions. We encourage students who are interested in gaining hands-on experience in psychological research to apply for future consideration!

Spring 2024: Closed

The Belief, Affect and Behavior Lab (BABLab) is seeking curious, detail-oriented research assistants to start in the lab during Spring semester 2024. Lab RAs will assist with various projects investigating the relationships between people’s religious/spiritual beliefs, emotions and behavior. Our goal is to introduce students to the various steps and aspects involved in psychological research, including (a) where research ideas “come from”, (b) how definitions and constructs are developed, (c) how data is collected and analyzed, and (d) how findings are interpreted. The lab is currently undergoing a series of online studies investigating how religiosity is associated with empathy and compassion. Additionally, RAs may be able to assist on a project related to spiritual yearning.

Students who are interested in gaining hands-on experience in psychology research are encouraged to apply by filling out the application and submitting it to the lab manager, Cheryl Tan []! Applications close Oct 27th.
