Internal Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Assistants

If you would like to get involved in research, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information! You can start exploring the research interests of our core faculty by consulting their web pages or via the research assistant positions link below. One you’ve identified a research lab that shares your interests, you can ask the professor if they are able to accommodate you in their lab. It’s usually best to contact professors the semester before you’d like to join. If you would like to conduct research off campus for course credit, please consult a Psychology faculty member or the Director of Undergraduate Studies for guidance. For additional future research opportunities, check the Tufts Summer Scholars Program and the Laidlaw Scholars Program.

External Opportunities

For Undergraduate Students

The link below will take you to an archive of recent advertisements that we have received from organizations external to Tufts Arts & Sciences. The advertised positions  may include internships during the academic year, summer internships, and full-time research positions for graduating seniors. As you look through these, think flexibly: if you are a junior and see an advertisement for graduating seniors that is local and interesting, you could ask the contact person if they have undergraduate internships available as well. (Please consider this archive to be an electronic bulletin board of sorts. Posting advertisements at the link below does not necessarily indicate endorsement by the Department of Psychology.)
