This project examines behavior, beliefs, and attitudes relevant to gender differences in career attainment. Using a variety of methods, including experimental studies, correlational studies, and archival analyses, this project seeks to understand organizational barriers limiting gender equality in compensation and advancement and to identify interventions aimed at mitigating them.

Research apprentices will be asked to help with data collection, data coding, data analysis, manuscript preparation, literature reviews, and team meetings.

Qualifications: Applicants majoring in psychology or other relevant field with an intention of pursuing graduate studies (doctoral) will be given priority. Highly conscientious people with strong attention to detail, strong quantitative and communication skills are sought. Reasonable availability on a weekly basis is also needed for coordination purposes.
