Graduate students

Dr. Yee will consider highly qualified applicants to enter the Ph.D program in the Department of Psychological Sciences (Language and Cognition) in Fall 2020.

Here is information about our admissions process.

Undergraduate students

The Yee lab typically has a few positions available each semester for UConn undergraduates to work as research assistants. Students typically register for three credits of undergraduate research (PSYCH 3889, independent study) per semester and spend 10-12 hours per week working in the lab.

Undergraduate research assistants assist the PI, post docs and graduate students with experiment preparation and data collection. We encourage undergraduate students to participate in the intellectual life the lab by attending weekly lab meetings. Some students, especially honors students or University Scholars, develop their own research project. Before applying, please read about our research to see if the lab would be a good fit for your interests.
