Interested in joining the DePTh lab?

Dr. Geldhof and his team are affiliated with the Human Development and Family Studies program in Oregon State University’s College of Public Health and Human Sciences. The program accepts students with and without a Master’s degree but expects all students to be committed to obtaining a research-based doctoral degree. Visit Human Development and Family Studies graduate program for more info and to apply.

Prospective graduate students interested in working in the DePTh lab should contact Dr. Geldhof via email.

Dr. Geldhof seeks driven, self-motivated students whose research interests align with the foci of the lab. He acknowledges and values the unique set of skills and experiences that each prospective student might bring into the lab.

When you email Dr. Geldhof, please let him know how your personal research interests align with the foci of the DePTh lab as well as what unique skills and experiences you have that will enable you to thrive as a Ph.D. student. Based upon the information you provide in your initial email, Dr. Geldhof may have questions about your coursework, GRE scores, etc., in order to assess your readiness to join the lab as a Ph.D. student.

Dr. Geldhof recognizes that grades and test scores are not always representative of an individual’s actual abilities, so he always provides prospective students an opportunity to discuss any discrepancies.

If you are not sure whether you are interested in working in the DePTh lab and/or would like more information about the lab or the type of work Ph.D. students in the lab do, please also reach out. We look forward to hearing from you!

Undergraduate and/or Honors students

We do not currently have any open positions for undergraduate research assistants, but Dr. Geldhof is open to working with and/or supervising Honors students.

Please contact Dr. Geldhof via email if you would like to discuss his potential involvement in your honor’s thesis. In your email, please describe the anticipated scope and focus of your honor’s thesis, your academic and career goals, and how your interests align with one or more of the lab’s foci.
