For Students

Professor Li does currently plan to review graduate student applications for Fall 2023 admission.  However, you should know that he is not 100% committed to accepting a new graduate student this cycle. This decision will be based on both funding and the fit/experiences/interests of specific applicants.

Professor Li is primarily looking for applicants that are interested in projects related to our current projects and recent publications in our lab.  If that work is of interest to you, we encourage you to apply.

Information on the clinical psychology Ph.D. program at UW-Madison can be found at the Department of Psychology website.

The Social and Behavioral Development Lab is looking to recruit dedicated undergraduate research assistants. To apply, you must:

  • Have interest in working with families and young children
  • Have strong communication skills and attention to detail
  • Major in psychology (or an equivalent major)
  • Commit to working in the lab for a minimum of two consecutive semesters
  • Have 10 hours per week available to work in the lab (3 academic credits = 9 hours/week)
  • Have a minimum GPA of 3.5

If you’re interested in joining our lab please email your application, resume/CV, and transcript to
