A minor in statistics ( applied statistics ) would be a great idea and would open many doors for research within and outside academia . Minors in computer science or neuroscience ( especially if you have experience of image ) are other good options . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus As a consultant , data analyst, or (research ) project coordinator are good ways to get your foot in the door for non-academic research . It might also be able to work as a researcher in engineering companies working with human cognition , such as artificial intelligence , robotics , interface design , etc. Also look at government offices (eg , NIMH , NIH , CDC , etc. ) if you are able to move - they might have some openings MedlinePlus related research . MedlinePlus I recommend getting at least a master's degree . PhD could be useful , depending on the sector, but not necessary for most jobs. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also - although you mentioned being in a cognitive psychology lab , you can try looking in applied social psychology , applied developmental psychology , industrial-organizational psychology or - fields tend to have a fairly wide range ( both industry and nonprofit ) employment opportunities for people interested in research .
