The Children’s Understanding and Behavior Lab (CUB Lab) at DePaul University, under the direction of Dr. Sheila Krogh-Jespersen, is currently accepting applications for Ph.D. students to start in the Fall of 2017. On-going research in the CUB lab currently focuses on infants and children’s developing social competence, including examining early intentional understanding and the development of prosocial deception. Other areas of exploration include prosocial interactive behaviors, experiencing awe in nature, and the development of empathy.
The CUB Lab is a part of the Psychological Science program at DePaul University. The Psych Sciences area includes other developmental psychologists, Dr. Yan Li and Dr. Joseph Mikkels, and collaborative research interests are encouraged across areas, including social, cognitive, and clinical concentrations. DePaul’s Psychological Science Ph.D. program is a highly competitive program that involves research and scholarship focusing on the psychological foundations of human thought and behavior. Our training prepares students for employment in a wide variety of scientific, academic, and applied settings.
