FACULTY SPOTLIGHT: 
 Dr. Alice Brawley


Alice Brawley received her B.A. in Psychology at Louisiana Tech University before completing her M.S. and Ph.D. in Industrial-Organizational Psychology at Clemson University, where she received a number of research and teaching awards. Dr. Brawley's research focuses on novel or understudied work populations, as well as research methods in organizational psychology. One work population that Dr. Brawley studies in particular is very small family businesses, with a focus on their performance management processes and the management of employee turnover in this setting. Another population she studies is "gig" workers such as Uber drivers and MTurk Workers, with a focus on how traditional findings from industrial-organizational psychology apply in these new working conditions.
Undergraduate Research Seminar
Find Available Summer Opportunities

Finding a Summer Research Opportunity
Thursday, November 3 5:30-6:30 PM: 313 Bessey Hall
There are a variety of summer opportunities available for students.  Programs are hosted by colleges and universities around the United States and they provide an intensive research experience on a particular topic within a scholarly discipline. Participants generally work with an advisor on a research project over the duration of their respective programs (usually 10 to 12 weeks). Many host universities cover all expenses (including travel, accommodations, and food) and provide a stipend. For undergraduates with plans for graduate or professional school after MSU, summer research provides the opportunity to expand your professional network and acquire experience in an area of interest. In this workshop, you will learn more about summer research, the benefits of participation, and effective search strategies, including how to find and apply for opportunities.
