Prospective Graduate Students
Prospective graduate students should apply to the psychology department's PhD program. More information is available on the department website as well as the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences webpage (GSAS).
Our lab welcomes committed individuals to apply for volunteer research assisantships with our lab. RAs work directly under one of the lab's graduate students and gain valuable hands-on research experience. Those interested in voluneteering should contact the graduate student whose research most closely matches their own interests.
Students who qualify for the Federal Work-Study program can apply to work as a paid research assistant in the Higgins lab. You do not need to be a psychology major to apply, but interest in psychological research (particularly the research of the Higgins lab), is a plus. Work-study RAs typically work 10 hours/week on a range of projects within the lab (see the Home section of lab website for more information on projects). Responsibilities include data entry, literature searches, coding, subject recruitment, and running experiments. Interested students should email the lab manager, and attach a cv, unofficial transcript, 2-page writing sample from any academic essay, and a short statement describing their research interests.
