The RPM Lab

The Reasoning, Person-Perception, and Morality Lab ("RPM Lab") is a research group at Nova Southeastern University that studies how we make moral judgments and decisions. We are always happy to add new members to our team, so if you are interested in learning more about how people think about morality and how psychologists conduct research, see below for more information on applying to join the Lab.

Research Opportunities for Undergraduates

Undergraduate research assistants are crucial members of the RPM Lab team. Research assistants take part in all aspects of the research process, including reviewing and synthesizing existing literature, developing hypotheses, designing studies, running participants in studies, analyzing data, presenting research findings at conferences, and writing papers for publication.

RPM Lab research assistants must be motivated, hard workers with an interest in psychology, specifically the psychology of moral judgment and decision making. Possessing previous research experience or majoring in Psychology are not required, though they are beneficial. Applicants to the lab should be prepared to work an average of 4-6 hours per week, for at least a full year. Typically, RAs work on a volunteer basis for one semester, then receive course credit for PSYC 4490 (Independent Study in Psychology) in each subsequent semester.

If you are interested in joining the RPM Lab, please email Dr. Landy. Please include your name, NSU email address, major, year, current resume/CV, schedule for the current semester, and information about any relevant prior experience or coursework.
