We use various methods to investigate this topic, including surveys, online and in-person experiments, community-based research, and qualitative research. The lab manager will assist with all ongoing lab research projects and contribute to the development of new studies. This position is ideal for those interested in pursuing graduate study in Psychology or a research-related position. Start date: August or September 2023.
