Opportunities For Students

RA opportunities

I will be accepting a few RAs for the 2018-2019 academic year (beginning Fall 2018). The primary study is focused on the experiences of partnered adults with prediabetes who participate in a lifestyle change intervention. Course credit is available for interested U students. There may be other opportunities in addition to this project.

If you meet the requirements below and are interested please email your CV (resume) and a copy of your unofficial transcripts to me: katherine.baucom@psych.utah.edu.

  • Particular interest in relationships and health
  • Able to commit at least 6 hours/week (5 hours in lab + 1 hour lab meeting) for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019
  • GPA 3.0 or higher

***I do not serve as a primary mentor to graduate students.***
