Students apply to the Psychology and Neuroscience Department through the Graduate School and should list Dr. Lindquist as a primary advisor. All interested students are welcome to reach out to Dr. Lindquist via email before applying. Students who are particularly interested in being jointly mentored by Dr. Lindquist and another faculty member should reach out to Dr. Lindquist to inquire about applying as a dual-program applicant (e.g., Social-Quantitative, Social-Developmental, Social-Clinical, Social-Cognitive). Applicants interested in neuroimaging might also find useful resources available on the Human Neuroimaging Group website.
We are always accepting conscientious and curious undergraduate research assistants. Undergraduates may work in the lab as volunteers or, on a limited basis, as independent study students. We take new students in the fall, spring, and summer. If interested in a research position, please contact us at casl [at] unc.edu with a statement describing your interest in the lab and including a resume with your current GPA.
