Research Opportunities for Students

Since 1997, FTRG has offered students an opportunity to be involved in its research. Such experience is needed for admission to most graduate programs in psychology and other helping professions.

We are looking for individuals to assist with and collaborate on ongoing and upcoming projects. For a description of our research, visit the What We Do page. People who join our team can expect great research experience. Individuals with a variety of education and backgrounds are welcome.

The research opportunity is unpaid, requires 12 hours per week, and includes mandatory attendance (on-site or by video conferencing) at our weekly lab meeting on Fridays from 10:30 am - 11:30 am. The majority of the research will be completed on-site in our lab located in the NYU Dentistry offices within the Manhattan VA. We strongly prefer a two semester commitment if you are invited to continue, and priority will be given to applicants that can meet this qualification. Coding requires two consecutive semesters (fall/winter; winter/spring; spring/summer; summer/fall).

If you are excited by the possibility of doing innovative research on couples, families, and family violence in a team environment, please apply. Please complete the application and send with a copy your resume/curriculum vitae to the FTRG Externship Coordinator at The subject of the email should be "FTRG Externship Application," and attached files should be saved as, "yourlastname_externapp," and "yourlastname_externCV." So, if your name is "Sean Jones," files should be saved and sent as, "Jones_externapp," and "Jones_externCV."
