Paid Summer Internship at the University of Pittsburgh

The Department of Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce its Summer Undergraduate Psychology Research Experience (SUPRE) Program, supported by a grant from the American Psychological Association. Interested undergraduate students can spend 8 weeks working with a faculty mentor in their laboratory to gain valuable research experience.

Students may choose to work with one of the following faculty mentors:

Tristen Inagaki

Jana Iverson

Melissa Libertus

Anna Marsland

Edward Orehek

Elizabeth Votruba-Drzal
