What pre-requisites do you look for when evaluating a potential thesis student?

The minimum CA of a 4D09 is 8.5; the miminum CA for a 4D06 is 8.0.  I will only take students interested in studying Evolutionary Psychology, more specifically only those interested in working on sexual selection among humans.  Courses in Evolutionary Psychology are required to enter my laboratory.  Read about my research before contacting me, and try to think of a new idea for a study based on literature, rather than your personal thoughts about how the world should work.

What information are you going to want from a student who is interested in working in your lab?

Student's grades will be examined. Only students with evidence of knowledge in human mate preferences will be considered. Be prepared to discuss experiment ideas upon an interview.

How do you want to be contacted?

I will evaluate applications on the ballot system once the ballot closes. You may contact me by e-mail, however, I may not respond until I evaluate the applications submitted through the ballot.  Please do not phone.  Please do not drop in without an appointment.  If you do email me, try to propose some ideas about what you would like to do.
