Join Our Lab

Research Assistants

We currently do not have any paid research assistant positions available. However, we often have volunteer research assistant opportunities for people with an interest in clinical research. Volunteers are expected to commit at least 7 – 10 hours per week for a period of no less than four months (a two semester commitment is preferred). Research assistants work closely with our research team (which includes faculty, graduate students, and other research assistants). Duties vary but can include assisting with subject recruitment; helping with laboratory studies; coding, entering, and analyzing data; and helping to present study results at professional meetings and in scientific publications. If you are interested in applying to work as a volunteer research assistant in the MDL, please fill out this form. If we have an opening, someone will contact you via email. Unfortunately, due to demand and limited number of spaces, not everyone who contacts us will receive a follow-up email. 

Graduate Students

The Department of Psychology at the University of Texas has an outstanding graduate program in clinical psychology. Graduate students join our laboratory through acceptance to the clinical psychology program. I encourage individuals interested in a career as a clinical scientist to apply to our program. You can find more information about our clinical program on the Department of Psychology website. Graduate students actively participate in our ongoing research projects. They are also strongly encouraged to develop and implement their own independent research projects. If you have specific questions about applying to the clinical psychology program at the University of Texas and you are interested working in our laboratory, please contact Dr. Christopher Beevers.


We are always interested in working with other laboratories, researchers, and clinicians. Please contact Dr. Christopher Beevers to discuss possible collaborative projects.
