As a Graduate Student

Prospective Graduate Students

Thank you for your interest in the DAS lab!

I will be reviewing applications for a new graduate student to join the lab in 2021. I am looking for individuals with a genuine passion for research, specifically research on depression. If you are excited about pursuing new research questions, disseminating findings to the academic community (via conference presentations and manuscripts), and talking about the latest research, you will likely feel quite at home in the lab. However, if you are primarily interested in pursuing clinical practice, the DAS lab is not a good match.

In the past, successful applicants have had extensive research experience (ideally in depression), first-authored publications and/or conference presentations, a strong GPA, glowing letters of reference, and the intension to pursue an academic or research career.

Graduate students have the opportunity to contribute to and publish from ongoing research studies and to design, implement, and publish new research projects that help us better understand the link between stress and depression. Please see the Research and Publications tabs to learn more about the types of research we conduct.

Due to the large number of applications received, I am unable to offer pre-admission interviews. However, you are welcome to send an email introducing yourself. I am very excited to find the next graduate student to join our incredible team.
