Project Description: 

We are looking for motivated, curious, and enthusiastic research assistants for the upcoming Spring 2019 Semester! In our lab, our research examines issues such as stereotypes/prejudices/discrimination, group functioning, and fundamental social motives from an evolutionary psychological perspective. For reference, here are just a few of the many questions we explore in our lab:

1) How do stereotypes (beliefs), prejudices (feelings), and discrimination (behaviors) relate to one another, and why do they act in this way?
2) What effect does discrimination have on our health, and why?
3) How do fundamental social motives affect our happiness and our perception of meaning in life?

Our lab also gives opportunities to gain first-hand knowledge about psychological research, and valuable experience for the job market and applying to graduate school! For more information about our lab, please feel free to contact our lab manager, Cari Pick, at cari.pick@asu.edu.
