Research Assistant Opportunities
There are a number of opportunities for research experience through the Child Maltreatment Lab and the research assistants are a key component in the development, maintenance, and success of the numerous research and clinical projects occurring in the lab.
Research Assistant Accomplishments
Along with volunteering their time in the Child Maltreatment Lab, the research assistants are active in campus and community programs working and volunteering at places such as CEDARS, Bryan LGH, The Friendship Home, Voices of Hope, Child Guidance, and the Lincoln Regional Center. Several of the research assistants are also active in pursuing other opportunities to enhance their experiences such as presenting research at state, regional, and national conferences, obtaining McNair and UCARE Awards, and involvement in the Senate for Psi Chi and the Undergraduate Psychology Organization (UPO). Although the research assistants continue to occupy their time with leadership positions and extracurricular activities related to research and clinical work in the field of psychology, the majority of them are currently on the Dean's List for academic excellence. Through their numerous experiences with research and clinical work, several of the prior research assistants in the Child Maltreatment Lab have gone on to be successful in research positions, Clinical Psychology Ph.D and Master's level graduate school programs.
