Research Participation

Dear Fellow Psychology Students,

I am writing to request your participation in my dissertation research. I am conducting a correlational study intended to examine how doctoral students respond when confronted with their peers' unethical conduct. I am collecting anonymous responses from doctoral students in American Psychological Association accredited doctoral psychology programs. The survey includes an informed consent, a demographics and program questionnaire, and questions related to experiences coping with peers' misconduct. Completion of the survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes. If you are interested in participating in this study please click on the Survey Monkey link below. Thank you in advance for your time should you choose to participate!

The department is particularly interested in applicants who have research, teaching, and clinical interests related to cultural diversity and working with underserved populations. Preferred qualifications include individuals who speak Spanish and have professional experience in working with people of Mexican-origin and other diverse populations in the southwest United States.

In addition to a competitive salary, funds will also be available for research and travel. There will be mentoring and professional development opportunities. Depending on the person's previous commitments and placements, the start date can range from July 1st to August 15th, 2013.

Early Career Work and Family Scholars Program

Applications are due on June 1, 2013.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 Early Career Scholars program. The Work and Family Researchers Network is committed to mentoring the next generation of work and family scholars. Our Early Career Scholars Program (ECS) provides supports for recent doctoral recipients to advance their research, teaching, and long-term career prospects. By offering networked resources and consultation, we help promising new scholars move into tenured appointments and secure senior-level positions, as well as engage them with the work and family community of scholars. This program builds on three successful cohorts supported by the former Sloan Work and Family Research Network. Fifteen scholars will be selected. Candidates must have received their doctorate in 2010 or later, and have yet to progress into tenured or secure senior level positions. Those anticipating receipt of their doctoral degree by June 2013 are eligible to apply. Application is not restricted on the basis of location. All participants are required to attend the WFRN conference to be held June 19-21, 2014 in New York City. Participants receive $1,000 to defer travel expenses. At that conference, special events will be targeted to serve their interests, such as networking opportunities with senior scholars and other career development activities. In addition, they will be connected with one another in periodic encounters beyond the conference, designed to facilitate collaboration, peer-mentorship, guidance on teaching, and development of research programs. To apply for the ECS, go here.
