Additional Information About the Job

Getting involved in research is a good way to learn practical skills, such as data analysis, and to see whether psychology, economics, and decision science are for you. Many students find that obtaining research experience helps them clarify their goals and gain admission to graduate programs (e.g., in psychology, economics, business, public policy, political science, or law school).

As a research assistant in the lab, you will work closely with members of the UNC Center for Decision Research and Organizational Behavior department on one or more of their research projects. Your involvement may include scheduling participants, preparing experimental materials, and running experimental sessions. In addition, you may be asked to give feedback on hypotheses and methods, to enter or code data, to conduct basic data analysis, to prepare materials for projects, or to conduct literature searches.
