Joining the Lab as a Research Assistant

Depending on the status of our current and upcoming projects, we may be open to bringing in new research assistants. Please note that we do not currently have paid positions available. Our research assistants are usually volunteering to gain research experience, research credit, and/or mentorship. 

Research assistants are initially assigned to one of studies being conducted by the lab and gain theoretical knowledge and technical skills related to projects within each team. We are particularly interested in training people who are hoping to apply for graduate programs in mental health or looking to gain specialized training in suicide research.

We expect research assistants to commit to a minimum of 8-10 hours a week for a minimum of

3 quarters. This includes attending mandatory lab meetings weekly on Wednesdays from 10:00-11:00am and weekly team meetings. CRISIS Lab research assistants are also expected to engage in responsible, ethical conduct of research. Successful applicants tend to have a strong GPA, excellent work ethics, and a strong interest in pursuing graduate training in clinical psychology. 

We review all RA applications once a year at the end of May and invite selected applicants for an interview in June. We then onboard successful applicants in July to start in September.

​If you would like to join our team as a research assistant, please download and complete a copy of our RA application form for then email it to Dr. Law at
