Undergraduate Training and Employment Opportunities

Training Opportunities

Undergraduate students play a vital role in the day-to-day functioning of our lab. Since 1989, hundreds of Psychology majors at the University of Pittsburgh have worked in our lab via the Departmentís Directed Research mechanism. Students who participate in the directed research practicum learn about research methods through a variety of experiences in our lab. First, in the classroom, they learn about the theoretical underpinnings of each of the research projects from Dr. Shaw, including the studyís conceptual basis, the methods used to collect data, and any findings that have resulted from the study. Second, students learn how to collect observational data in both the laboratory and familyís homes through classroom demonstrations and observations of assessments. Third, students go out and assist us in collecting data for our four ongoing studies, including both basic research on the development of conduct problems in childhood, and intervention studies designed to prevent the development of early conduct problems and promote healthy behavior among youth transitioning to adolescence. All assessments are directed by senior staff, including graduate students in child clinical and developmental psychology.

Requirements to Participate in the Directed Research Practicum

To work in the lab via the Psychology Departmentís Directed Research mechanism, students should:
  • Have a Psychology GPA of 3.0 or higher Have taken or be current taking Research Methods or Statistics Be willing to work in the lab for a minimum of two terms Be interested in working with children at risk for psychopathology and their families Enjoy working with children
  • Be willing to devote 7-8 hours of your time, including weekend hours
Students who meet these prerequisites should feel free to contact Dr. Shaw at casey@pitt.edu or 412 624-1836 towards the end of each term. The PPCL typically enrolls students at the beginning of the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms. Each term students receive 3 hours of credit that count for required hours for the Major. Up to 6 hours of credit can be used towards the Major and up to 9 hours of directed research credit can be counted towards graduation. For those students who are interested in working at the PPCL but are not Psychology Majors, students from other FAS Departments (e.g., Sociology) and other schools (e.g., Social Work) have been successful in obtaining academic credit for their work in the lab. Interested students should contact their advising office for more information about appropriate mechanisms.

Undergraduate Employment Opportunities

Students enrolled in the Directed Research Practicum also have the option to work (for pay) as undergraduate employees or work study employees, for up to 20 hours per week during the Fall and Spring terms, and up to 40 hours per week during the summer. Directed Research students who also work as employees typically assist in data preparation and reduction, including compiling questionnaires, data entry (using teleforming software), organizing files, and gathering scientific articles.

For more information about becoming a Directed Research intern in our lab, contact Dr. Shaw at casey@pitt.edu or (412) 624-1836.


Graduate Training Opportunities

Dr. Shaw serves as a mentor for students in the University of Pittsburgh’s doctoral programs in Child Clinical and/or Developmental Psychology within the Department of Psychology, most notably the Department’s joint program in Child Clinical and Developmental Psychology. Students who are mentored by Dr. Shaw typically work on one or more of the PPCL’s ongoing studies and are supported as graduate student researchers or fellowships throughout their stay at the University.

Doctoral students working with Dr. Shaw have been quite successful in publishing their work completed during graduate school, obtaining Federal fellowships during their tenure at Pitt (from NIH), and obtaining positions in academic settings after graduation. Former students have taken positions at the University of Chicago, the University of Utah, the University of California at Berkeley, and Arizona State University. In addition, because of the number of ongoing collaborations the PPCL has with scholars within and outside the University of Pittsburgh, there is the potential for students to collaborate with these investigators.

For descriptions of ongoing studies and links to publications, please see the Index page of this website. To ask more specific questions, please contact Dr. Shaw at casey@pitt.edu.

Post-Doctoral Fellows Training Opportunities

Since 1997, 1-2 post-doctoral fellows have worked at the PPCL. In the past, one position has been funded via the Pitt Mother & Child Project. In September, 2009, we expect 1-2 post-doctoral positions to be available from the Early Steps Project and/or the Parental Involvement and Children's Extra-Familial Contexts projects. Another post-doctoral has been funded by various funding mechanisms at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (WPIC), funded by the National Institutes of Health. See the link below to find out more about WPICís post-doctoral fellowship program.
