Research Assistants

We usually have a number of undergraduate students working in the lab as volunteer research assistants (RAs). These RAs play a vital role in our research and are involved in many aspects of the research process. Tasks that RAs may be involved in include: library research, assisting with the design and development of research materials, data collection, data entry, and data coding. We prefer a time commitment of at least 4 hours per week.

RAs can work as volunteers, as students enrolled in research engagement credits, or, if you qualify, as a work-study position.

We are most interested in people who would be able to commit to working with us for at least 2 semesters. 

Preferred qualifications include:

  • psychology major
  • completion of PSYC 201 and 210
  • computer skills in word processing, spreadsheet, email, and library searches
  • interest in intergroup relations and environmental psychology
  • interest in graduate studies
  • ability to work independently as well as with others

In our lab, we are working hard to be inclusive and anti-oppressive. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, identities, and life experiences.

The lab is not currently accepting new applications. Please check back next academic term. For SFU Psychology Students, we will advertise in the Psychology Engagement Newsletter the next time we are accepting applications.
