I am accepting applications from prospective graduate students seeking to begin the doctoral program in Fall 2017. The Department’s deadline for applications is December 1, 2016. In your application, I look forward to reading how your interests and background connect with the lab’s current directions and research methods.

If you are interested in joining the lab, I encourage you to contact me! I’m happy to answer any questions you have about our research, the resources available to graduate students, the developmental program within the department, the large community of developmental psychologists across campus, and any other issues you might be wondering about.
best, Jonathan Beier

One last thing, worth noting because it isn’t always obvious: the University of Maryland is very close to the College Park metro station, part of the Washington DC subway line and a 15-minute ride from all that downtown DC has to offer.
