Finding a Research Lab

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

  • Departmental Research Listings - Each semester, labs that are actively seeking undergrads to join their group post their opportunities here. See each posting for more info about how to get involved and 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
  • The MBB Program's Research and Other Opportunities Board - Not monitored by the Psychology Department, 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!
