Individual Faculty Research Grants, which may be either internally or externally funded, offer graduate students an opportunity to work as research assistants. The topic and availability of these grants vary from year to year.
Participate in laboratory experiments
You can register to participate in laboratory experiments conducted by researchers in our department in the Interdisciplinary Experimental Laboratory (IEL). Experiment sessions usually last between 1-2 hours, have performance-based cash rewards that are paid at the end of the session, never use deception of any kind, and present minimal risk to participants. Cash earnings average approximately $10-15 per hour, but can vary significantly based on individual performance.
