Research Assistant Opportunities

The BRTC provides opportunities for undergraduate students and postbaccaleureate volunteers interested in future graduate study in the mental health field to gain clinical research experience by serving as research assistants. The opportunity is available to UW students receiving Psych 499 course credit and to volunteers.
 

Psych 499 Students

UW students have the opportunity to earn Psych 499 credit for their work. We typically require that such students work 9 hours per week (3 credits) for at least 3 quarters—a commitment that includes a required 1-hour weekly research seminar during the first quarter. See the Psych 499 website for more information about 499 credit and for a listing of our current projects.
 

Volunteers

UW students, students at other universities, and postbaccaleureates have the opportunity to join our lab as volunteers. We typically require that volunteers work 9 hours per week for at least 3 quarters (9 months)—a commitment that includes a required 1-hour weekly research seminar during the first quarter. Please see the Psych 499 website for a listing of our current projects.
 

Other Information

The weekly research seminar is offered to orient research assistants to the BRTC, develop their research skills, help them work toward their career goals, and educate them about the research conducted at the BRTC. The day/time of the seminar varies with each quarter.
Research assistants do not typically work directly with Dr. Linehan. Research assistants typically take on more responsibility and greater opportunities as they become more advanced.
