Robinson Lab outing Krust Pizza Fall 2014The Robinson lab seeks highly motivated students who have demonstrated an interest in motivation, reward and addiction from a behavioral neuroscience perspective and are early in their academic career. Priority for limited positions is given to individuals who demonstrate success in Motivation and Reward (NS&B 227), Behavioral Neurobiology (NS&B 213), and Statistics (e.g., PSYC 200; SPSS statistical software). Students must be willing to work with rodents, be self-motivated and enthusiastic, demonstrate critical and analytical thinking, and show an interest in experimental design.

Opportunities to participate in the lab take many forms including enrolling in the lab’s research course or an independent tutorial, serving as a lab assistant, or applying for a paid summer position.  For exceptional students, there is also the possibility of writing an honors thesis.  All lab members must have flexible hours and be willing to commit a minimum of 10 hours per week to the lab.  The best way to find out about opportunities is to complete the attached form (hyperlink to form) and email it along with a copy of your CV/resume to
