Join the Lab

Thanks for your interest in the TAYA Lab! All information below was last updated in Sept 2021. 

Prospective Graduate Students

Updated September 14, 2021: Thank you for your interest in the TAYA Lab! I will not be accepting applications for the 2021-22 admissions cycle (in other words, I am not accepting new students to join the UD Ph.D. program in Fall 2022).


As you consider grad school options and work on your applications, I strongly recommend the professional development webpage of my own graduate school mentor, Mitch Prinstein at UNC Chapel Hill. Among many resources related to applying to grad school and careers in psychology, you’ll see a grad school application guide I wrote when I was a grad student in 2011. My lab is currently working on updating this guide and I’ll post it here soon! 


Good luck with your applications and take care!

Undergraduate Students

As of September 2021, we do not have any openings for paid, volunteer, or course-credit RA positions for undergraduate students (UD or non-UD) for Fall 2021. If we decide to accept applications for Spring 2022, we will announce that here. If you would like to be added to an email list of interested prospective RAs, please email, and she will email you if positions become available.
