Dr. Jaimie Arona Krems and Dr. Jennifer Byrd-Craven are each planning on accepting one or two PhD students into their labs—the Krems Social & Evolutionary Psychology Lab and the Byrd-Craven Psychobiology Lab—this application cycle.
Research from OCEAN faculty touch on female cooperation and competition, friendship, hormonal underpinnings of bonding, social emotions, morality, and stereotyping and prejudice. View individual lab webpages for more information.
Both labs are the new—and growing—Oklahoma Center for Evolutionary Analysis (OCEAN), an interdisciplinary Center that includes faculty with taking evolutionary approaches to psychology, anthropology, political science, and animal/comparative behavior. OCEAN values inclusivity and is proud of its supportive, team-like atmosphere.
Students will receive training geared toward producing scholars able to work at highest-research institutions as well as to teach and mentor a diverse student body. Interested applicants are encouraged to email prospective mentors
Students would be fully funded with stipends and have tuition waved; no GREs are required, and all interviews will take place virtually. Applications are due December 1, 2020. More information about the program and the link to the application are available here.
