If you are interested in working with Professor Craig (or anyone in the Psychology department), you can find information about the PhD program here and the application process here, respectively.


If you are currently a graduate student at NYU who is interested in working with Professor Craig, please feel free to contact her directly by email.


Undergraduate research opportunities include volunteer work, independent study (for course credit), honors research, and summer research opportunities. We are seeking undergraduates who demonstrate conscientiousness, commitment, a willingness to learn, and an interest in research. To learn more about this lab’s research, please view our lab Research page. Responsibilities for research assistants include running experiments to collect data, data entry and coding, research stimuli and survey creation, and assisting with literature searches. Research assistants work primarily with doctoral students and the lab manager in the lab, and contribute to the research process while gaining valuable research experience.

No previous research experience is necessary; however, it is helpful for students to have had at least taken Introduction to Psychology (PSYCH-UA 1) and Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences (PSYCH-UA 10).

If you would like to be considered for a Research Assistant position, please complete our application form online. If there are any available openings, we will contact you to schedule an interview. If you have questions, please contact the lab at LabEmail2.

Please note that we strongly prefer first-time Research Assistants to volunteer between 6–9 hours per week for one semester, prior to being approved for obtaining course credit or working in the lab as an Honors Program student.

For more information about getting involved in research, please reference the NYU Psychology Department’s guidelines for undergraduates.
