Undergraduate Students

The Psycholinguistics Lab welcomes self-motivated students who are eager to learn about the scientific process and language processing. First generation students are strongly encouraged to apply, as well as students from marginalized and diverse backgrounds. 

To facilitate a productive experience for all, undergraduate students who join the lab are required to dedicate at least 6-10 hours per week in the lab (either volunteering or earning 2 s.h. of research credits per semester), for at least two consecutive semesters. Student responsibilities vary depending on the projects, lab needs, and students’ interests (e.g., preparing research tasks for participants, running eye-tracking and EEG participants, organizing and coding data). In addition to these tasks, students are expected to participate in weekly lab meetings which may include lab training, brainstorming, problem-solving, and student-led presentations in preparation for upcoming conferences. 

If you are an undergraduate student and would like to connect with the lab about the possibility of joining as an undergraduate research assistant, please email us at CSD-PsychLingLab@uiowa.edu. 

 Please note that the lab is full for Fall 2023 and Spring 2024.
