Volunteers should be highly motivated and detail-oriented, are hired for a 1-year commitment (2 academic terms, summer is optional), and are expected to work between 8 and 10 hours per week. This time commitment will involve two to four hours one weekend a month. In turn, TRAC Lab Volunteers are intimately involved in many aspects of research, including hands-on training in EEG collection and analysis, literature reviews, and data entry and coding. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email expressing your interest, along with your CV and an unofficial transcript to .
Thank you for your interest in our lab! We are not currently recruiting volunteers but will update this page when positions open up.
Dr. Weinberg supervises undergraduate honours theses (e.g., PSYC 380, PSYC 496/497, PSYC 498) as well as undergraduate research projects (PSYC 450, PSYC 494). Typically, the TRAC lab can accommodate 3-4 undergraduate research projects each year. If you are interested in completing an undergraduate research project in our lab, please send an email expressing your interest, along with your C.V., unofficial transcript, and the course you are registered in to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be advised, however, that most undergraduate project students in our lab have been previous volunteers.
Interested applicants should consult the psychology graduate program at McGill University for further information about admission requirements and deadlines. Students are also encouraged to apply for external funding (e.g., SSHRC, CIHR, NSERC, FQRSC, FRSQ, FRQNT).
From my perspective, reaching out personally via email is not necessary; I read all application materials carefully and take a holistic view of each applicant.
There are a number of funding opportunities for post-doctoral fellows, including the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships, Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives fellowships, Fonds de recherche Sante, and CIHR. Please contact Dr. Weinberg if you're interested in applying for one of these funding mechanisms!
