THE STRESS AND DEVELOPMENT LAB IS ACCEPTING A GRADUATE STUDENT
The Stress and Development Lab is hopeful to be admitting a graduate student to begin in the fall of 2023.
When reviewing applications, we focus on whether applicants have research interests that are a good fit for the questions we study in the lab as well as prior research experience. Prior research experience with children and adolescents and a track record of independent research (e.g., a thesis project as an undergraduate, a poster presentation at a research conference, or involvement in a research publication) are the types of research experience that are weighed most heavily in the review process.
For a description of our ongoing research studies, please click on the Projects tab of our lab website. You can read more about each of our ongoing studies on this page.
If you have additional questions about the application process, please feel free to contact the Lab Director, Katie McLaughlin, at email@example.com
RESEARCH COORDINATOR POSITIONS
The Stress and Development Lab is currently not hiring another research coordinator to join the lab. Please check back here in early 2023 for more information about potential openings.
VOLUNTEER WITH THE STRESS AND DEVELOPMENT LAB!
For most of the studies in the SDL, we rely on undergraduate research assistants to help us with all research-related processes. Research assistants help administer tasks and questionnaires to participants, organize, enter, and check data, recruit study participants, and process psychophysiological and neuroimaging data. Most of our participants attend school, so we typically run studies in the late afternoon/early evenings on weekdays (2-7 pm) and as needed on Saturday afternoons. Saturday availability is strongly preferred. We prefer that research assistants have experience working with children and adolescents and have taken relevant courses such as Abnormal Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Psychological Statistics, or Fundamentals of Psychological Research. You may receive class credit for working at the SDL.
The SD Lab is no longer accepting volunteer RAs for Summer 2022. Please check back here for more information on potential Fall openings later in the summer.
