Prospective Grad Students

I intend to accept graduate students who will begin the program in the Fall semester of 2017. If you are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. at the University of Illinois and would like to work with me, please email me (motyl at uic dot edu). Students working with me will likely also be interested in collaborating with Linda Skitka, Tomas Stahl, and Sylvia Morelli, who all do fascinating, related research. Moreover, students working with me will have access to hundreds of thousands of research participants through the virtual laboratory I help run, YourMorals.org.


Prospective Undergraduate Students

If you are interested in getting involved with my research, email me.

I generally require an overall GPA of 3.3. Undergraduate research assistants help with all aspects of the design, execution, and analysis of experiments. We meet as a full group every other week to share findings and ideas.
