Potential Undergraduate Students

If you are an undergraduate student who is looking for research experience, the PCD lab may be a good fit if you are interested in gaining research skills in parent-child relationships and developmental psychopathology. To be eligible, students must have a 3.4 GPA or better and be able to commit to a minimum of 6 hours per week during the semester and/or the summer, for at least two semesters. In addition, students must be able to attend a weekly meeting with their supervisor. Students must be highly responsible, reliable, motivated, and dedicated to conducting accurate and high quality work. Good attention to detail and the ability to carefully follow directions (e.g., complicated protocols for data collection) are also important. Finally, it is important to have the capacity to work independently (while having the judgment to know when to ask for assistance).
