Join Us

The Emotion and Morality Lab is committed to training students at the undergraduate, Master’s and doctoral level. Students are considered junior colleagues — your success is our success. Students at any level who are interested in joining the lab should contact Dr. Chapman directly to discuss available opportunities.

Undergraduate Students

Gaining research experience as an undergraduate is a great way to deepen your knowledge of psychology, explore a career in research, or build your resume for a career in another field. Brooklyn College undergraduates can join the lab and earn course credit by enrolling in one of the Psychology Department’s research experience classes (PSYC 2001-2004 Laboratory Experience or PSYC 5001-5004 Independent Research). Students work on their research projects for a minimum of 8h a week, and a two-semester commitment is required, usually starting in September.

MA Students

Students enrolled in Brooklyn College’s MA in Experimental Psychology can join the lab by enrolling in PSYC 7795/7796 (Independent Research), or by conducting a research thesis. Students spend a minimum of 10h a week on their research, and a two semester commitment is required. Dr. Chapman also hosts a limited number of MA students from other institutions who are interested in fulfilling research requirements in the lab.

Doctoral Students

The lab is currently seeking highly motivated doctoral students to join us. At CUNY, doctoral degrees in Psychology are granted through the Graduate Center. Dr. Chapman's primary affiliation is with the Basic and Applied Social Psychology program, although she can also co-supervise students through the Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience program.  

Postdoctoral Fellows

Generally, postdoctoral fellows need to obtain their own external funding (e.g. NIH, NSF) to support a stay in the lab. If you are interested in working as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab please contact Dr. Chapman to make arrangements.

High School Students

We do not currently accept applications from high school students.
