General Lab FAQs
Here are the answers to some general questions we get asked frequently about the lab. For answers to more specific queries (such as “how do I create a researcher account?” or “how do I sign up for studies?”) please see either our Participants page or our Researchers page.
- Can I use the lab space to run studies? Can I use the lab SONA to gather participants? Can I use the lab websites to advertise for my study?
- Can I participate in studies if I am not a Columbia student?
- Are there employment opportunities at the lab?
- How does the lab reach out to participants? How does the lab advertise active studies?
The Behavioral Research Lab facilities are open only to faculty in the Columbia Business School, or those working underneath them. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student looking to utilize the lab, your faculty sponsor must be a member of the Business School.

The only requirement for creating a participant account on SONA is that the account is created with a .edu e-mail address. Therefore, if you are a student from another university or an alum with a working .edu e-mail address, you are invited to participate in our studies. If you do not have an active .edu email address you will not be allowed to participate in our studies.
At this time there are no open positions in the lab. [Back to top]
