Research Psychology Jobs

Research psychologists, also known as experimental psychologists, study the behavior of both humans and animals.  They change variables within a laboratory setting to study how a person or animal reacts to or behaves in certain situations.  These are the researchers studying the affects of variables on animal such as mice, rats and monkeys.

Major areas of study include learning and memory, attention, motivation, effects of substance abuse and genetic factors affecting behavior.  They typically work in universities and private research centers for businesses, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies.  There are even research psychologists employed in engineering firms, manufacturing settings and zoos!
