Graduate Students

Training Opportunities

Dr. Shaw serves as a mentor for students in the University of Pittsburgh’s doctoral programs in Child Clinical and/or Developmental Psychology within the Department of Psychology, most notably the Department’s joint program in Child Clinical and Developmental Psychology. Students who are mentored by Dr. Shaw typically work on one or more of the PPCL’s ongoing studies and are supported as graduate student researchers or fellowships throughout their stay at the University.

Doctoral students working with Dr. Shaw have been quite successful in publishing their work completed during graduate school, obtaining Federal fellowships during their tenure at Pitt (from NIH), and obtaining positions in academic settings after graduation. Former students have taken positions at the University of Chicago, the University of Utah, the University of California at Berkeley, and Arizona State University. In addition, because of the number of ongoing collaborations the PPCL has with scholars within and outside the University of Pittsburgh, there is the potential for students to collaborate with these investigators. 

To ask more specific questions, please contact Dr. Shaw at casey@pitt.edu.
