Paid Summer Research in Scientific Psychology and Data Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
The Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP) provides intensive mentoring and experience in scientific research and professional development to undergraduates from historically underrepresented populations — those from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, those from low-income backgrounds, those with disabilities, and first-generation college students — who have expressed and demonstrated an interest in a career in scientific psychology.PREP is unique in that we have a focus on integrating principles and methods of data science into the study of psychology and neuroscience. The program features a balance of mentored laboratory research (approximately 30 hours/week), intensive “bootcamps” on technical skills (e.g., R and Python programming), faculty presentations, professional development and networking opportunities.See the link to “PREP Research Abstracts” on the right for examples from the Summer 2011-2019 programs; see “Program Highlights” under the “About PREP” link for more specifics about the program. https://psych.wisc.edu/psychological-research-experience-program/
