Finding a Research Lab

Here are some ways you can get started with research opportunities as an undergraduate in the Department of Psychology... 

  • Check out our handout, How to Join a Lab!
  • Departmental Research Listings - Each semester, labs that are actively seeking undergrads for research assistantships post their opportunities here. See each posting for more info about how to get involved & relevant deadlines for each lab, as they vary across labs.
  • Faculty Lab Websites - See each faculty's lab pages for lab contact information and descriptions of their research. Contact any that interest you!
  • Board of Honors Tutors - This is a list of researchers in psychology and related disciplines from the broader Harvard community who may be interested in supervising undergraduate research assistants. Contact any that interest you!
  • Non-Departmental Research Postings. - Opportunities for undergraduate research not necessarily within the Psychology Department at Harvard.
  • The MBB Program's Research and Other Opportunities Board - Not monitored by the Department of Psychology, but these postings may be applicable to Psychology students - check back for regular updates!
  • Summer Opportunities - Updated regularly with opportunities for the upcoming summer. Check back in December/January to see the most updated list of opportunities for the following summer!
