Dr. Hibel is currently seeking a new PhD graduate student starting in the Fall of 2020 for an exciting R01 from NICHD studying Mexican origin families with young children. Dr. Hibel is looking to recruit an interested student who has a personal connection to this community.
The project has three main aims. We are: 1) examining the role of contextual stressors and parenting in the development of self-regulation from 6 months to 4 years. 2) examining the role of moment to moment and day to day parent-child biobehavioral exchanges in the development of self-regulation. 3) examining cultural and family level resilience factors. To do this we are collecting cultural, economic, psychological, and biological (e.g., cortisol, telomeres, sleep) data. We will be entering year 4 of the project in 2020, which will be a perfect time for a new student to get experience collecting data while also having access to collected, cleaned, and ready to analyze data!
