Get Involved

There are numerous ways for you to get involved with the Parenting Relationships Research Lab. Whether you’re a University of Maine student, a parent interested in taking part in one of our research/outreach projects, or a member of a nonprofit or organization looking to partner with us. Below you will find some of the ways you can be a part of what we do at the lab.

Participate in a Project:
If you are a parent, we would love to have you participate in one of our projects. We are currently recruiting parents for the following projects:

Join the Lab Team:
UMaine Students: We are currently accepting applications for students interested in earning course credit by doing field experience or independent study in the lab during the Fall 2023 semester. There are a limited number of positions available.

Volunteer positions: We are currently accepting applications for volunteer positions in the lab. Volunteers must agree to be involved with lab activities for a minimum of 5 hours per week. This is a great opportunity for students to get experience and learn how to conduct and understand research projects. In addition, if you are interested in going to graduate school after your bachelor’s degree, participation in a research lab looks great on your application.

Potential students: We are recruiting both graduate and undergraduate students to participate in the lab. If you are interested in getting involved in research on parenting relationships and getting your degree at the University of Maine, please reach out to and we can speak to you about the process.

Paid Research Assistant Positions: We are not accepting applications for paid positions at this time. When positions become available, they will be listed.
