Thanks for your interest in participating in research at UC Berkeley! See below for a variety of different ways to participate:

BLab: The Behavioral Lab (BLab)

The Behavioral Lab coordinates research conducted by faculty and graduate students at Haas. These experiments offer you the opportunity to learn about research in business, and may even be fun! If you are interested in participating in research studies, you can find out more about how to set up an account on our experimental recruitment platform (SONA).

Learn more about BLab here.

The Experimental Social Science Laboratory (XLab)

The XLab conducts behavioral and social, decision-making experiments in the lab. All UC Berkeley students and staff are eligible to participate and receive at least $15 an hour compensation.

Not affiliated with UC Berkeley? The XLab occasionally has research studies available to community members (non-UC Berkeley affiliated individuals). To check for such studies, create a SONA account and join the pool under the course called  “Paid studies for NON-Cal participants”.

Go to the XLab website.

Psychology Department

Research teams in the psychology department run a variety of paid research studies. These studies often seek to recruit participants from the wider Bay Area community. Compensation amounts vary.
