Application Deadline: Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at Baruch College

This program provides concentrated research experience in which each student plans and executes an independent project, and works with a faculty mentor and their research team on existing research projects. Students will develop knowledge and skills in all phases of psychological research, including hypothesis development, research design, data analysis, and scientific writing. Faculty will guide REU students through the process of formulating a research hypothesis, designing and implementing the project, and analyzing and summarizing the findings. Students will present their research at the Baruch REU conference and potentially at regional or national conferences in psychology. REU students will complete a year-long graduate school preparation course taught at Baruch College. Students will learn about the graduate school admission process, how to build one's credentials through research and practicum experiences, the GRE, soliciting letters of recommendation, and applying for fellowships. This course will assist students in planning advanced education in the areas that best match their interests.

Paid undergraduate research training program funded by the National Science Foundation being offered by the Psychology Department at Baruch College, CUNY for the 2014-2015 academic year.  Applications are due on April 11, 2014.

RESEARCH TEAMS

The four research teams are described briefly below. Each team will consist of one faculty member, undergraduate and graduate lab members and three REU students. Students will work with the same research team throughout their training. Students will be asked to indicate the teams with which they would most prefer to work. Although every effort will be made to accommodate students' preferences, high demand for certain research areas may necessitate assigning students to their second or third choices.

ACTIVITIES

  • Each REU student will complete an independent research project supervised by an REU faculty mentor
  • Each REU student will spend at least 10 hours each week during the fall and spring semesters at Baruch College working as part of a faculty-led research team
  • Each REU student will contribute to ongoing research projects by collecting and analyzing data
  • All REU students will enroll in a year-long graduate school preparation course taught at Baruch College

STIPEND

  • Each student will receive $1960 for each 14-week semester as compensation for time working in the research lab.
