Research Assistant: Developmental Personality Neuroscience Laboratory
Our lab studies learning, decision-making, and emotion in those with and without personality pathology (i.e., symptoms of personality disorders). In particular, our research investigates abnormalities underlying Borderline Personality Disorder and its development during adolescence and early adulthood. To study these topics, we use a variety of techniques including clinical interviewing, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), computational modeling, physiological recording, and diverse behavioral methods. Our research assistant position provides exposure to many aspects of psychology and neuroscience research, and can provide excellent preparation for a number of post-graduate opportunities (e.g., graduate school, research careers, clinical careers)!

We offer a variety of opportunities for students interested in clinical psychology, neuroscience, and personality research. Common tasks for this position include running participants through experimental sessions, participant recruitment and communications, data entry and data management, quality-checking brain images, preparing study materials, and more. Additionally, all RAs will attend lab meetings and complete a semester paper on a research topic of their choosing. Advanced students may elect to complete a senior honors thesis while in the lab. Interested students should complete our Undergraduate Research Assistant Application to be considered for a position. We accept new RAs into the lab on an as-needed basis, but are most likely to do so as the beginning of the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.
