Prospective Graduate Students
The University of Oregon Department of Psychology offers doctoral and individualized masters programs for students interested in both research and clinical psychology. Accepted graduate students are encouraged to build collaborative relationships with faculty and students outside of their primary areas of interest. Application materials for the doctoral and individualized masters psychology programs, along with additional information about the department and faculty, can be found at the Psychology Department website.
Graduate students in the DSN Lab pursue research studying the developmental trajectories and neural correlates of topics such as: self-evaluation, perception and understanding of others, emotions, motivation, decision-making, and self-regulation. For more information, please see our recent studies and publications.
If you are interested in projects currently going on within the lab, or have ideas for projects and/or collaboration, please contact Dr. Pfeifer. The University of Oregon provides an excellent environment for collaboration across disciplines and we encourage you to get in touch with your ideas!
