Undergraduate students interested in pursuing research with the lab may apply for a research assistant (RA) position. Credit opportunities may be available from your university or college!

RAs gain valuable experience in pediatric psychology research that may include but are not limited to:
-Recruiting and running participants through laboratory experiments or clinical studies
-Conducting literature searches and research summaries
-Data entry and database development and management
-Research presentations and publications (for highly research-motivated students)

These experiences can enhance applications for graduate school or jobs in a variety of fields. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.4. Students who can commit to the lab for one year will be given preference. Students who have received A's or B's in research courses will also be given preference.  Please email Dr. Clawson if you want to learn about getting involved with her research lab at
