The UVa Social Development Lab typically accepts one to two doctoral and masters students per year to engage in mentored learning experiences and contribute to our work. These students typically matriculate through the Doctoral Training Program in Educational Psychology and Applied Developmental Science or the Master in Educational Psychology: Applied Developmental Science at the Curry School of Education. Opportunities for undergraduate students interested in obtaining research experiences are often available as well. Contact Julie Thomas for more information.

Periodically the lab hires staff, research assistants and post-doctoral trainees to assist with various research projects. If interested, please contact Julie Thomas to learn about current opportunities.
