Thanks for your interest in helping with our research program!


Northwestern University Undergraduates:

Please note that these are competitive positions, and successful undergraduate applicants typically have applicable experience or related interest and a high GPA.

The minimum time commitment for undergraduate research fellows is 1.5 years.

Although these are volunteer positions, there are also opportunities to participate in paid research fellowships through the University Programs at Weinberg College.

There are also opportunities to participate for course credit through the Department of Psychology (see your advisor in the Psychology Advising office for details).

We also encourage students to conduct honors projects through research conducted in the ADAPT lab.

Post-Bachelor's/Master's Level Volunteers:

We are particularly interested in working with students who have already graduated, and are looking for a year or more of experience before applying for graduate (psychology Ph.D.) or medical school. We are also eager to work with Masters level students. There are many opportunities to become involved in-depth with the research projects in the lab.

Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN) Students

The lab focuses on utilizing a range of cutting edge neuroscience techniques and we are eager to work with NUIN Students from Feinberg School of Medicine, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, McCormick School of Engineering, School of Communication and the Children’s Memorial Research Center (CMRC).  Please contact us if you are interested and we can discuss options for Funding.
