Interested in getting involved with the lab? See the information below to learn more about how to contribute to our research.

Research assistants (RAs) in the lab typically assist with participant recruitment, experiment scheduling, collecting behavioral data, and assisting with basic data analysis. Some previous RAs have gone on to complete independent research projects, and many make the decision to pursue graduate studies.

Whether the lab is accepting RAs at any given time depends primarily on whether any of the current lab members are in need of help with their ongoing projects. If you are interested, please send an email to Natalie Plotkin including the following:

  • Brief description of research interests and/or experience
  • CV or resumé
  • Number of hours/days per week available to commit to the lab

If any RA positions are available, we will be in touch to schedule an interview. Otherwise, we can keep your information on file until further opportunities arise.

Graduate students are admitted to the lab via Columbia University's Psychology PhD program. Additional information about the program and instructions for how to apply can be found via the links below:

We are often looking for potential participants to enroll in our ongoing studies. Stay tuned for more information about how to sign up.
