Join Us!

Join us as a Graduate Student:

Please consider joining us as a graduate student via the Florida State University's (FSU) doctoral program in Clinical Psychology. FSU's graduate program in Clinical Psychology is an APA-accredited program based on a clinical science model. You can find out more information about our program on the Department of Psychology website.

Graduate students in the Joiner lab are vigorously involved in our ongoing resarch and encouraged to pursue, develop, and implement their own independent research projects within our laboratory. For information on how to apply, as well as admission statistics, deadlines, and requirements, please visit the Psychology Graduate Program website.

Dr. Joiner helped develop and fully endorses the clinical area's statement on diversity and inclusion (below), and welcomes any queries and discussions regarding it:

The clinical area would like to issue a statement regarding our commitment to embrace human diversity and inclusion. Diversity refers to differences in race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographic region, religious beliefs, gender identities, sexual orientations, age, and heritage. We view diversity as fundamental to the human experience and strive toward active, intentional, and on-going engagement with diversity via the curriculum, clinical training and practice, and research. We strive to create a diverse and inclusive student body and faculty that empowers traditionally disenfranchised groups. We are actively working to increase our awareness and action plans regarding these issues within the program. Along these lines, students and faculty should be aware that engagement in activities to enhance diversity and inclusion of traditionally disenfranchised groups within the program is welcomed and appreciated. Further, we will consider all feedback among the department and will act intentionally relative to these comments. We believe that on-going, thoughtful, and critical engagement with diversity issues is necessary to improve the program.

Join us as an Undergraduate Student:

Graduate students are often actively seeking bright, trustworthy, and committed undergraduate students to assist them in ongoing research projects. Undergraduate students have the opportunity to earn psychology elective credits by actively contributing to the research efforts in our laboratory.

Undergraduate research assistant and DIS students work closely with our team to assist with subject recuritment, run laboratory studies, and code, enter, and analyze data. We also encourage undergraduates to develop and implement their own research ideas in the form of an Honors Thesis.

To find out if any of our graduate students are recruiting undergraduate assistants, please contact our lab coordinator directly at

In order to be considered for a position in our lab you must fill out our DIS application form completely, attach a curriculum vitae or resume, and have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
