randompsychologist Posted October 31, 2013 Share Posted October 31, 2013 Maybe this can be a thread for this sort of thing for all of us? I'll share what I know too... So, I am applying to PhD programs in neurocognition and I need some smart back ups. i'm afraid this cycle doesn't look good for me... My teaching load for the past year's been too heavy--I'm behind but trying to make the best of it. I really want something that will strengthen my research/analytical skills in case I'm rejected from everything. I finished a BA/MA program in psych a year ago so I don't want to do any psych masters programs unless they're Quant psych and funded. Sounds random, I know, but having better stats skills would be useful. Another MA may be a stupid way of going about it? Gah...I have no idea! Considering one Quant Psych MA and the post-bac fellowship at Duke. I don't know what else to do that may require an app before March. Maybe lab manager and RC positions? What chances do I have at positions like that at neurocognitive labs if all me research to date is behavioral (3 years, 3 posters, an honors thesis and an MA thesis). Currently I'm in a new lab (since May) and I should have some ERP experience by the time I apply to RC/lab manager positions? Anyone take a paid position? How was it? Any advice? I want to be in a challenging environment where I have lots of skill building work... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
