Graduate Students

The CASNL will be considering applications to the University of Chicago Department of Psychology Ph.D. program for the current application cycle (deadline: 12/1). Competitive applicants will likely have strong statistical and computational skills, including proficiency in one or more programming languages, and an interest in interdisciplinary research. If you are interested in joining our lab as a Ph.D. student, you can get in touch with Dr. Leong to let him know that you are applying so that he can look out for your application.

Postdoctoral Fellows

If you are interested in joining the lab as a postdoctoral fellow, you are welcome to reach out to Dr. Leong to discuss potential projects and funding options. Please include your CV and a cover letter describing your interest in the lab.

Undergraduate RAs

Undergraduate RAs in our lab may be involved in all aspects of our research, including designing research projects, running subjects, analyzing data, presenting at academic conferences, and preparing manuscripts for publication. RAs typically devote 10 or more hours a week to research in the lab (30-40 hours/week in the summer). If you would like to indicate interest in joining, please submit an application here. Note that we rarely accept RAs who are rising fourth years.
