The Hamilton Lab is directed by Jessica L. Hamilton, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology and Clinical Psychology PhD program at Rutgers University on the New Brunswick Campus. 

Our research identifies risk factors for the development and worsening of depression and suicidality (i.e., suicidal ideation and behavior) among adolescents. The goal of our research is to inform adolescent suicide prevention programs that are informed by clinical and developmental science, and that are scalable and accessible to diverse populations of youth. 

Interested in joining our team?

The Hamilton Lab is looking for motivated, creative, and passionate individuals to join us as graduate students, undergraduates, and research assistants! 


Dr. Hamilton plans to accept a clinical psychology PhD student this year (2020-2021 admissions cycle) for matriculation in Fall 2021.
