In Person

The Crowd Lab is geographically distributed across three locations in Virginia:

  • KnowledgeWorks II (2202 Kraft Dr) at Virginia Tech’s Blacksburg campus,
  • The Media Building (101 Draper Rd) at Virginia Tech’s Blacksburg campus, and
  • VTRC-Arlington (900 N Glebe Rd) at Virginia Tech’s Arlington campus.

Please contact us ahead of time to arrange a tour or meeting.

Joining the Lab

We are especially interested in students with the following skill sets: web development, visual design/graphic design, qualitative and quantitative data analysis, and domain knowledge of national security, history, and/or journalism.

If you are a current Virginia Tech graduate or undergraduate student interested in working in the lab, we often have positions available for volunteering, course credit, hourly pay, and¬†assistantships. The best time to inquire about these is several weeks before each semester starts. We also have summer internship positions available through the NSF’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Please contact Dr. Luther regarding the availability of student positions, and provide a copy of your resume and describe your interests in the Crowd Lab.

If you are a prospective student or a student from another university, please contact Dr. Luther to discuss possibilities. Include a copy of your resume and describe your interests in the Crowd Lab.
