Research Assistant Positions

CARE Lab is currently seeking undergraduate student volunteers at Ryerson University who are curious about research in the fields of psychology, health, or addiction. Students will have the opportunity to get involved in all stages of the research, from study design, participant recruitment, data collection, data analysis, and literature reviews. Preferred candidates are available at least one day a week (6 – 9 hours is typical) and have some experience in research methods, statistics, and/or technology (for instance from psychological or health science courses). This is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience with psychology research for graduate school, medical school, or future employment. 

Dr. Dermody and the CARE lab is committed to building a diverse and multicultural community that reflects the communities that we serve. We welcome and especially encourage applications from visible minorities, Aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.

If you are interested, you can apply to join the lab using this Application for CARE Lab Volunteers Google Form. Please do not hesitate contact Dr. Dermody for more information.
