Research Tech II position (lab manager): The position is no longer available.

Undergraduate research assistants (RA): We are currently accepting undergraduate RA applications for the spring 2020 semester.  We will be launching a study investigating how contextual factors (e.g., alone versus with others) impact how people regulate their emotions. We will also examine the behaviors that people use to regulate their emotions that may be adaptive in the short range (e.g., reduce negative emotions) but may lead to negative outcomes if used too frequently or chronically (e.g., playing video games, online shopping).

We are seeking students who are conscientious, committed, and excited about emotions. The primary responsibility of RAs will be to phone screen interested individuals and run laboratory sessions. RAs will also read journal articles, attend lab meetings, and much more! Please find an application below. We are accepting applications on a rolling basis and conducting interviews through the end of the semester and final exams. This multi-method project is a collaboration with Dr. Tammy English’s Emotions & Relationships Laboratory.

Prospective graduate students: Professor Thompson will be accepting applications for graduate students for the next application cycle (i.e., for the 2020-2021 academic year). She is seeking graduate students who are interested in affective science and mental health.

As a policy, she does not have phone or web meetings with prospective students before reviewing all applications. She has this policy as a part of best practices effort to reduce bias in the review process.
