Notes to Prospective Students:
Graduate students: Dr. Hoyt is accepting 1-2 ADP Ph.D. students for the 2023-24 academic year! Here are some things that would make you a good fit for the 3D Lab:
Background education/training in psychology, human development, biology, policy, education, sociology, public health, or other relevant fields
Previous research experience
Interests that align with the 3D Lab (e.g.., sociocultural perspectives on adolescence/young adult development; health inequalities; stress and well-being; civic engagement)
We will be starting a new longitudinal project in 2023 on socioeconomic profiles, educational protective factors, and cardiometabolic health among diverse emerging adult college students at minority-serving institutions. Students interested in this topic are especially encouraged to apply!
Undergraduate students: We encourage motivated students looking for research experience in developmental psychology, stress, health disparities, civic engagement, and/or youth participatory action research to apply for a research assistant position in the 3D Lab. [Note: The lab is currently full for 2023; we will recruit new undergrad RAs in spring 2024!]
We ask for a 1-year commitment, but we hope that you will stay with us until you graduate!
You do not need previous research experience to apply for a position in the lab; we are looking for people who are creative, driven, self-motivated, like working in teams, and eager to learn. Some useful skills include for undergrad RAs may include: social media experience, graphic design, comfort working with diverse adolescents, experience with focus groups/surveys, coding, community engagement (e.g., volunteering, CEL courses), lived experiences that align with our adolescent and emerging adult participants.
Students interested in doing a senior honors thesis or a mentored independent project with Dr. Hoyt should work in the 3D Lab for 2 semesters (or one semester + summer) before pursuing this type of student-led project.
