Join us!

Potential graduate students: If you would like to join the MASC Lab as a graduate student, introduce yourself by sending an email to seanmlaurent [at] or slauren [at] Tell me little about yourself, like why you’d like to join the lab and what your research interests are. Note: I’m not currently planning on admitting new PhD students for the 2021-2022 school year, but students interested in UIUC’s Masters in Psychological Science program are encouraged to apply.

Undergraduate research assistants and others: If you’re thinking about joining as an undergraduate research assistant or post-baccalaureate contributor, you should write me at the address above and also let me know a little about yourself: Why would you like to join our team? Why our lab and not another? What might you like to get out of the experience of working in our lab?

For what may seem like obvious reasons, we like to give preference to people who are considering postgraduate training in social psychology (i.e., you’ll probably get the most out of the experience). However, we’re happy to consider anyone who is interested and who is also conscientious, friendly, and reliable.

If you are interested in being a research assistant, contact us to see if we are recruiting new members. You can also get an application  here and submit it to me by email (see above). Thank you for your interest in our lab!
