Catching up with a recent grad~ Stephanie Agtarap

Stephanie Agtarap has been taking names as she has been finishing up her postdoctoral experiences out in California!

We asked her to take a few moments and pass on her wisdom <3 Thanks Stephanie!

What do you think was your favorite part of the program?

I started during a time when the program consisted of few people (faculty + students), which meant close communication and idea sharing commonly occurred between students and faculty. I hope the program brings back BSci (back then Experimental) Coffee/Happy Hours; those were low maintenance (going across the street for a beer I mean coffee) and a lot of fun! They also helped create a stronger bond between faculty and student issues, awareness of research in others’ labs, and a better representation for everyone all around.

What do you think you wish you would have known coming into the program?

This will differ among students based on their training goals and the plans they’ve set with their mentors, but there really are many ways to achieve your training goals while at UNT. As the older faculty knows, I had a wide range of experiences that weren’t necessarily planned: from multiple mentors with successful output, to long-term external experience in an applied medical setting. For a long time, I thought I was doing graduate school wrong! But as long as you are following your interests and making plans to ensure those interests become viable output, you are progressing. I would suggest having open communication early with your mentors so the larger goals of your training are set, and in turn, shape what you do daily.

What do you wish you would have known pursuing a fellowship?

Most of my contributions as a non-clinical fellow in a clinical context are providing alternative strategies for research questions/analyses when the team is stuck. Really take the time to strengthen your research toolbox, especially those tools that aren’t your bread and butter. As Dr. Henson from EPSY mentioned in last year’s newsletter, we tend to shape our research world and questions through the statistical tools we know. Though it can help strengthen our systematic research, it can potentially be limiting.

Some times where my team looked at me and I wish I had more conviction in my response:

· Since our sample size is so small, what if we flipped our longitudinal data and used MLM instead of SEM… that doesn’t change the nature of our question, right? *cue desperate recall of HLM*

· Why do we have twelve predictors? Are we really controlling for these correctly by throwing them in Block 1? Stephanie, what would you recommend?

· You’ve heard of Mendellian randomization right? What do we need to take out that’s too confounded with it if we add it?

What do you wish you would be able to encourage or pass onto the incoming first years?

· It always feels like you’re the imposter in the room. I feel it now, writing what I hope is worthwhile advice!

· You will hear all the multiple ways you can maximize your graduate training, especially when it comes to NIH funding. Pursue those outlets but remember a small percentage of people actually obtain this funding; there are other opportunities that may be better for what you need.

· In my experience so far, one adage remains consistent throughout my training, and was just reiterated by several researchers during a conference this weekend:

o Opportunities come when hard work meets serendipity. Hard work comes from staying on top of your research field, having ideas/results to discuss, and being able to use that information in a chance meeting at a with a collaborator, or guest speaker at a conference.

o Do not underestimate the impact of these opportunities. My external research position was the result of me speaking casually to a faculty member looking to bolster her collaborative work, and following through with my interest. It was the best choice I could’ve made.

· “Doing well’ goes far beyond saying the right thing in front of your mentors. Say wrong things, get clarification. If/when you commit to something, give that responsibility its proper due. Strive for perfection, expect to mess up. Own your mistakes. Play around with multiple designs or analyses, see what becomes your bread and butter. Graduate school is that time for trial and error, so when your fellowship comes, you know from your mistakes (as well as your successes) what you can confidently do.

What's the most surprising thing you’ve learned since you have left?

· There are more opportunities for experimental psychologists in the community or clinical world than I realized, particularly in the realm of longitudinal work and big data. Do not believe that you can’t belong in an applied world if your heart is there.

· You will hear this a lot, but I now I experience this everyday: Network. If that word is off-putting, then don’t settle for just attending a conference or showing up to a person’s talk. Encourage yourself to join committees or take leadership positions in associations. Not only does it get your name out there, but it also exercises those interpersonal soft skills that are often ignored.

· Mentors, I find that making a point to introduce your students to other collaborators is invaluable for mentees. I had no idea that “jumping on a phone call with my colleague Ron if I was interested” actually meant “helping put together results for Ron Kessler”!! (I research-fangirled like an idiot.) Encouraging that kind of connection, especially from third year to dissertation defense and beyond, really helps.

Favorite part of your work right now?

The free structure, one I’m soaking up while I have it. Because I already work with collected data, I determine my own schedule here, and have on other obligations outside volunteering with the Postdoc Association. But it also means I am personally responsible for my productivity, and that productivity is directly associated with my utility here in San Diego. So, in many ways I work harder than I did while at graduate school because I’m intrinsically motivated to do so.

What's it like to be out of the program working?

I love it! See above. I am at a research university that is predominately life sciences, and while I’m not out of the academic bubble, conversing and befriending postdocs from across the scientific spectrum has been both humbling and motivating.

Any info you want to pass on to current students?

· If the road from no grant experience to writing an F31 is (appropriately) daunting, start small with student or foundation grants! They will at least jumpstart a working draft of your materials.

· If you fit under the eligibility criteria for an award in your given division or association, apply. Applying is professional development and networking in itself, and the materials you’re forced to create will save time later down the road.

· Utilize those department and graduate school student awards!! Don’t take their presence for granted.

· I’ve found having a trackable record of my progress and goals keeps both me and my mentor on task. If you haven’t already, consider utilizing an Individual Development Plan. It also saves time: NIH requires you to put one together anyway if you apply for a training grant.

· Fellowships are often passed along through listservs only, with the occasional few appearing in national databases like APS Employment Network. If you haven’t yet, join the listservs of your relevant associations to find the best postdoc opportunities. It’s how I found mine!

Catching up with an Alumni

Dr. Johnathan Banks

Dr. Banks was gracious to sit down and divulge some of his journey and life details:

  1. I am now an Associate Professor at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL and the program director for the M.S. in Experimental Psychology program. A large part of my time is spent teaching and conducting research. Outside of work, I spend as much time as possible with my wife and almost 8 year old son. My son was born before my last year at UNT and I can’t believe he is almost 8! I also enjoy riding my road bike and playing classical and electric guitar. Having a life outside of academia helps me to keep everything in focus and reduces the stress that can come with an academic job.
  2. Going directly from graduate school to a faculty position was an adjustment. While I was very busy in grad school, adjusting to the multiple demands of a faculty position--teaching four classes a semester, running my own lab, mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, and committee work-- took a little while. One of the first times that it hit me that I was now running my own lab occurred when I was deciding which of three possible studies I wanted to run first at NSU. My first instinct was to call Adriel and get him to approve of the choice I made. While I did talk with him about the possible studies, he made it clear that it was my call. I think that the only way that I was able to go directly to a faculty position was that 1.) I had an amazing advisor for my PhD! And 2.) Prior to attending UNT, I worked at the University of North Carolina as a program director for a federally funded research center. The mentoring that I received at UNT and at UNC were critical to my development as a researcher and a faculty member.
  3. The most surprising thing that I have found recently in my field is the rapid increase the emphasis on large scale replications. I have been fortunate to be involved with one of the “Many Labs” Projects that attempted to replicate several prior findings. My involvement in the project occurred because a former undergraduate student in Dr. Boals’ lab reached out to me about it since her lab in graduate school was helping to lead the project.
  4. The best recommendation that I have for first year students is to watch successful senior graduate students and faculty. I often see first year graduate students assume that what made them good students as undergraduates will make them good graduate students. As a first year graduate student, I learned that being on campus from 8-5 and then working from home/studying in the evening resulted in the greatest levels of productivity. I would also tell first year students to schedule time in their day to read new research articles and to write. The same advice works for senior graduate students. It can be very easy to put off writing (or work on your dissertation) as other work will get in the way. The best technique that I have found to fix this is to schedule time to write and keep it in your calendar in the same way that you would a class. This always forces me to sit down and write, even if I “don’t feel like writing”.
  5. One thing that I knew during my first year of graduate school but wish I had focused on more was making connections to individuals working in my area outside of UNT. I was able to make connections with faculty at other universities during my later years. Now, in addition to having Dr. Boals as a colleague, I have colleagues at other universities that I can collaborate with and to ask for feedback on current research. I am also grateful for my friends from grad school at UNT. Those connections can continue well past graduate school!

Other random thoughts:

  1. My time at UNT was amazing and I was very lucky to have amazing faculty and the best possible mentor that I could imagine. The impression that I always had at UNT was that the faculty got along with each other. In looking for a faculty position, one of the things that I was looking for was a department that in general got along. I was lucky to be hired in a department in which we all truly get along and are happy when anyone in the department succeeds.
  2. The transition from graduate school to a faculty position was interesting as I had to get used to undergraduate and graduate students asking me the same types of questions that I asked my undergraduate and graduate advisors. The shift from student to faculty is an exciting one but you also realize that you are now the one dispensing the advice that was so critical to you as an undergrad or grad student.
  3. When I entered the program at UNT my primary focus was to develop as a researcher. During my time in the program, I had the privilege of helping to mentor several undergraduates in Dr. Boals Lab. One of the pieces of my current faculty position that I enjoy most, outside of my research, is mentoring undergrads and grad students in the lab. I love watching students discover their passion for research and develop as researchers.
  4. While I am happy to now live in Florida and not have to shovel snow, I do truly miss Texas weather, Bluebonnets in the spring, and Texas BBQ!

Spotlight : 9/2017: Dr. Heidimarie Blumenthal

Big picture

Dr. Blumenthal was awarded a $430,000 R15 grant from the National Institute of Health/NIAAA

Dr. Blumenthal kindly shared with us her thoughts about her upcoming project!

~Individuals with elevated social anxiety (SA) are at risk for problematic drinking, and recent work suggests that this relation may be specific to women; however, alcohol use among adolescent girls is severely understudied, and mechanisms underlying the SA-alcohol use relation remain unclear. Thus, understanding how these factors are linked will be critical to designing effective intervention programs.

~Girls, (14-17 years) with high and low SA will be randomly assigned to either rejection or non-social stress task. Evaluating the indirect effects of key cognitive and psychobiological variables in the relationship will be essential .

~The primary research goal is to test whether acute social stress (i.e. rejection), as compared to non-social stress, elicits greater alcohol-relevant cognitions (i.e. approach to alcohol-relevant cues; desire to drink) among socially anxious female adolescents.Given the social nature of youth drinking contexts, learning to use alcohol in an effort to reduce socially-oriented negative affect may be particularly problematic. It is expected that a significant proportion of the relation between SA and the alcohol indices will be accounted for by the indirect effects through disengagement coping (e.g., desire to escape), and psychobiological stress responding (i.e. salivary alpha amylase/cortisol ratio), and that these relations will be primarily driven by those in the rejection condition.

~The study uses a convergence of sophisticated laboratory procedures to examine relevant mechanisms that may underlie alcohol use among socially anxious girls. The project offers a rich training experience for student researchers, providing hands-on, guided exposure to an array of advanced research techniques, embedded within a successful, dynamic, and highly collaborative research program. This significant, innovative, and clinically relevant project will provide an excellent springboard for developing prevention-oriented programs as it seeks to better understand risk factor processes related to adolescent alcohol use, SA, and their co-morbidity; all of which represent key public health concerns.
