My research group provides an opportunity for undergraduates interested in hands-on learning regarding systematic experimental social science research.  This experience has proven valuable both for students hoping to pursue careers in the sciences and for those who plan to go on to professional schools or join the workforce directly. FessLab (so named by the students) is structured as a hands-on apprenticeship — newbies begin with simple tasks, then gain additional responsibilities as they demonstrate their skills and potential.  Those who make highly significant contributions earn co-authorship on resulting publications.

We have a lot of fun, get a lot of research done, and sometimes play with various lab doggies and babies.

If you are interested in joining FessLab, contact me.
