Research Psychologist - 71F
Research psychologists are responsible for research that determines the effects of physiological, psychological and social variables on military personnel and their families. Research psychologists use interdisciplinary methodologies to conduct empirical research to enhance servicemember performance and health. The Army's research psychology community is academically oriented, but it also conducts program-driven applied research. Our officers are encouraged and expected to remain academically engaged and collaborate with academics from top universities from across the globe. Our research is routinely presented at top conferences and published in both books and peer-reviewed journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of Applied Social Psychology, Journal of Applied Psychology and many others.

Research psychologists have access to sophisticated technologies, research methods, and opportunities to consult with leading military and civilian researchers, as well as the other professional growth opportunities such as attending professional development courses, research seminars, and academic conferences.
