Harvard Decision Science Lab sponsors a program each academic year for a select number of undergraduates with interest and talent in developing skills in the design and conduct of experimental research.
HDSL Undergraduate Fellows have an unparalleled opportunity to work alongside faculty researchers conducting experiments at HDSL. Fellows typically have an opportunity to participate in every phase of experimental science, from the development of a research hypothesis and the design of an experiment to experimental programming, IRB submission, conduct of experimental sessions, and analysis of experimental data. Fellows are trained in the use of all aspects of the lab's capabilities, including physiological measurement systems and the lab's networking capabilities.
By virtue of their appointment in the lab, HDSL Undergraduate Fellows are made part of the IQ Scholars program of the Institute for Quantitative Social Sciences at Harvard. Participation in the program entails at ten hours of work each week in the lab (for which Fellows are paid an hourly wage); regular participation in the HDSL Lab Practicum course, run by the lab's leadership; and participation in the monthly gatherings of IQ Scholars.
