The Developmental Psychology Doctoral Program at the University of Pittsburgh seeks talented undergraduates with a passion for research in human development. Please share this announcement with relevant students and faculty. Application deadline is December 1st, 2017.
Our faculty study normative and atypical developmental processes from early infancy through early adulthood, with particular expertise in social, emotional, cognitive, and motor development across diverse contexts. Students are encouraged to obtain cross-disciplinary training across faculty and labs which exposes them to a range of theoretical perspectives and permits them to acquire multiple methodological tools, including classic observational and behavioral approaches, as well as state-of-the-art methods using eye-tracking, EMA, and psychophysiological and neurobiological measures. Our students obtain excellent positions in academia, industry, and research and policy institutes.
We fund students for up to 6 years, and provide supplemental research, professional development, and conference travel funds on top of tuition remission, health benefits, and a competitive stipend. Pittsburgh is a great place to live with a vibrant cultural arts scene, huge city parks and nearby nature preserves, top notch sports teams, excellent restaurants, and a very low cost of living. The department and the city are friendly, collegial, and inspiring!
