Research Assistants

If you are interested in our research themes and would like to work in the lab, please contact us! We ask that you be prepared to commit to 8-10 hours of research per week. As a research assistant, you will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience building, conducting, and analyzing experiments online and in the lab. We are strongly committed to undergraduate research mentorship, providing training that will sharpen students' empirical-based decision making skills and help prepare them for educational and job opportunities beyond undergrad (e.g., graduate school, medical school, law school, non-profit industry). If you are interested in joining the lab, please fill out this application and email it to the lab manager at

Graduate Students

We would like to accept a new graduate student to join the lab in Fall 2022. Our lab seeks to foster an intellectually diverse environment by bringing together an interdisciplinary team of researchers. Along these lines, we are looking for applicants with a strong background in cognitive or social psychology, computational modeling, economics, and/or neuroscience (e.g., experience with neurostimulation techniques such as TMS and tDCS). Ideal candidates will have demonstrated independent abilities in experimental methodology, data analysis, and/or programming. If you are interested in applying to the lab, please email Dr. Gaesser your CV and a description of your research interests. The deadline for applying is December 1st.


Similar to graduate students, our lab aims to work with postdocs from an array of research backgrounds. Postdocs who are interested in pursuing related research should email Dr. Gaesser.
