Research opportunities for new graduate learners:

  • My laboratory has an opening in September 2017 for one incoming MA Psychology graduate learner(s) for thesis supervision.

Research opportunities for undergraduate learners:

  • Opening in September 2017 for one or two 4th year Psychology undergraduate learners to undertake the Psychology 4901 thesis (filled by J. Moore for the upcoming 2017-18 year ).
  • Ditto for one or two undergraduate learners for a Psychology 2917 or 2937  Research Opportunities course (filled by L. Kushnier for the upcoming 2017-18 year).   Learners pair up with a senior learner(s) in the lab to acquire hands-on experience with an ongoing psychological science projects(s). This involves 72 hours of lab direct work leading to experiences in most aspects of research:  consideration of theoretical underpinnings, ethical issues and formulation of hypotheses;  project conceptualization and design; anticipated outcomes; running participants in the protocols, data collection, management and analyses. The learner will attend regular Friday 4pm lab meetings throughout the semester, keep a log of research activities, and make two presentations to the lab group regarding a tentative undergraduate thesis research proposal.  This helps prepare students for the Psychology 4901 thesis course.  This Research Opportunities course may take place in the fall, winter, or a combination thereof (negotiable).

If you are interested in any of the above opportunities, please send  me an email briefly outlining your interests and an unofficial transcript of your grades. Subsequent meetings will be arranged for selected applicants.
