The following full-time professors have expressed a desire to receive inquiries from undergraduate students seeking to volunteer as research assistants. Note, however that research positions are limited. A professor's listing does not guarantee that positions are available for all students who wish to work on a particular project. Research positions are negotiated agreements between the student and the professor and thus will vary in amount and type of work required, and whether student name recognition is possible on presentations and publications resulting from the research. Most professors require completion of Psychology 42 and Psychology 144 prior to assisting with research. Additional courses may also be required.
