Make money in the ser­vice of science!

We are look­ing for stu­dents to take part in ex­per­i­ments at WULABS. In these ex­per­i­ments, you make de­cisions in eco­nomic situ­ations, such as auc­tions, mar­kets, trad­ing, pro­duct evalu­ation, etc. These ex­per­i­ments help us bet­ter un­der­stand eco­nomic activ­ity.

A typ­ical ex­per­i­ment takes about an hour and is held at our com­pu­ter­ized lab­or­at­ory in Build­ing D2 of the WU cam­pus. In every ex­per­i­ment you can earn money. In most ex­per­i­ments the amount that you earn will de­pend on the de­cisions that you and the other par­ti­cipants make. To par­ti­cip­ate, no spe­cial know­ledge of eco­nom­ics or mathem­at­ics, or spe­cial com­puter skills are re­quired. However, a good com­mand of Eng­lish or Ger­man is ne­ces­sary to un­der­stand in­struc­tions.

To be in­vited for ex­per­i­ments, please re­gister at Your re­gis­tra­tion in the sys­tem is non-­bind­ing, you will then re­ceive spe­cific in­vit­a­tions by email to in­di­vidual ex­per­i­ments. You can with­draw your re­gis­tra­tion at any time. Your data is treated con­fid­en­tially and used ex­clus­ively for scien­ti­fic pur­poses.

In the email in­vit­a­tion for an ex­per­i­ment you will be in­formed of the avail­able times, dur­a­tion, and type of pay­ment for the ex­per­i­ment. You may then re­gister for a par­tic­u­lar "ses­sion" of that ex­per­i­ment.
