Our Future

Graduate Students

Dr. Moser is no longer accepting graduate students for the Fall 2017 academic class.

Research Assistants

Research assistants (RAs) are a vital component of our research team. We are often looking for undergraduate research assistants, most frequently at the beginning of each semester.

RA Requirements Include:

  • At least a 3.5 GPA
  • We ask for at least a one-year (two full semesters) commitment
  • An average of 10 hours/week commitment
  • Must have two-hour blocks of free time throughout the week to run sessions with participants in the lab
  • Highly recommended: Having an interest in physiology – our research utilizes a physiology-based method (electroencephalogram)

Primary RA Duties:

  • Running EEG sessions with participants in the lab
  • Data entry and coding
  • Organizational duties, which could include assembling research materials, making copies, etc.

Benefits of Becoming a RA:

  • In-depth research experience that includes working directly with participants and understanding how the research process works
  • A letter of recommendation (if you successfully complete your year commitment)
  • Exposure to graduate school and what it is like – you are welcome and encouraged to meet with any of our graduate students to discuss grad school, research projects, or post-graduation plans
  • Opportunities to attend and give presentations on research findings
  • You may also receive PSY 490/491 credit after you complete one full semester
  • The depth of your experience in the lab is entirely dependent on your personal interest and motivation to seek out opportunities to become more involved in the research process
  • Working in a fun, motivating environment with other students who have similar interests
