Interested in Being a Research Assistant?

Working in a lab can help you gain important research, quantitative, analytical, and interpersonal skills, all of which are essential if you plan to pursue a PhD in Psychology. If you are a Carnegie Mellon University student, you can also receive course credit for your work. Research assistants in the behavioral health lab typically work nine hours per week, which includes lab work and attendance at a weekly lab meeting. If you decide to apply, know that Research Assistants are expected to commit to working in the lab for a minimum of one year. Also, know that applicants must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 to be considered.
