Graduate and Undergraduate Students

It is currently unclear whether the lab will be accepting an incoming graduate student in 2022-2023. If we do consider applicants, then we are particularly interested in applicants with prior research experience and those applicants who are passionate about mindfulness-based interventions for substance use disorders or chronic pain, implementation science, and/or harm reduction approaches to research and treatment of alcohol and opioid use disorder. Please see the UNM Department of Psychology application instructions for more information.

We are always looking for undergraduate research volunteers who are motivated and committed to learning about research via hands on research experience. If you are interested in volunteering as an undergraduate research assistant please send your CV/resume to

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Our lab actively works to be anti-racist and is engaged in community organizations that are devoted to reducing human suffering and improving health equity. We wholeheartedly appreciate the role of diversity in research and training and welcome lab members from historically marginalized groups, including women, individuals who are Black, Indigenous, Hispanic/Latine, and persons of color, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender, and gender nonconforming, people with lived experience of substance use disorder and mental health conditions, people with disabilities, people with incarceration histories, and those who are first generation college students and/or first generation immigrants. We are committed to increasing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion of all racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender groups in our research and in our lab.

The UNM Psychology Department Diversity Committee is engaged in many activities to increase diversity, inclusion, and equity at UNM. Please read our statement regarding recent events and our commitment to work toward making the UNM Psychology Department a safe and fulfilling place for all of us to learn and work.
