Research Positions: Graduate

Thank you for exploring the possibility of becoming involved in the Regulation of Emotion in Anxiety and Depression Lab. The success of this laboratory depends heavily upon the involvement of bright and motivated recent graduates. Although we welcome any inquiries from individuals interested in research on emotion and anxiety disorders, those who join our lab as research assistants are often considering attending graduate school in clinical psychology, but would like to gain research experience before applying. Several of our past research assistants in our lab have been accepted to top clinical psychology graduate programs.

Typically, our research assistants work primarily in the lab on an ongoing research project related to emotion regulation and anxiety disorders. Responsibilities include recruiting participants for studies, collecting and analyzing data, and preparing data for presentation and publication. In addition, research assistants are expected to participate in a 1-hour lab meeting each week to review the progress of experiments in the lab as well as to discuss papers relevant to emotions and anxiety.

Students from Hunter College in some circumstances may arrange to receive credit for their participation in the lab. We welcome interest in independent research projects as well. To learn more about specific research projects, please see the Research section on this website.

If you're interested in learning more about these research opportunities, please contact Dr. Mennin to arrange an interview.
