The Department keeps a list of those interested in participating in research for pay. The information on the list is confidential. A subject (person who participates in the research project) can be anyone: an undergraduate student, graduate student, staff member, faculty or someone unrelated to the University.
When a researcher has a need for subjects, they review the list and call those who meet the criteria for their specific study. The researcher will also coordinate payment for participation, which will be processed through either the UM Payroll Office or Cashier's Office depending on whether the subject is a UM employee.
Please note that the paid subject pool list is only shared with those affiliated with or those collaborating with the Department of Psychology.
In order to be added to the paid subject pool list, please complete the Paid Subject Pool Survey. Data is purged after one year, so please submit a new form each year in order to remain on the list.
