The Department of Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce its Summer Undergraduate Psychology Research Experience (SUPRE) Program, supported by a grant from the American Psychological Association. Interested undergraduate students can spend 8 weeks working with a faculty mentor in their laboratory to gain valuable research experience. Students may choose to work with one of the following faculty mentors:
The program will run from June 4 – July 27, 2018 (though some flexibility in starting and ending dates may be possible). Students will be hired as full-time, paid research assistants ($12/hour, minus taxes) in their mentor’s lab during the 8 weeks of the program.
To be eligible for the SUPRE program, students must:
· be enrolled at a U.S. institution (though they need not be students at the University of Pittsburgh or U.S. citizens)
· have had little to no prior experience working in a psychology research lab
· have completed at least their freshman year
· have not yet have obtained a bachelor’s degree
Students from underrepresented minority groups and first-generation college students are especially encouraged to apply. For more information, please contact the faculty coordinator, Dr. Jana Iverson
Applicants will be informed of decisions by May 1, 2018.
