We are inviting motivated, detail-oriented students at the University of Toronto Scarborough to join the lab as volunteer research assistants. In this new lab, we conduct research on topics such as empathy, morality, romantic attraction, beliefs about social phenomena, and statistics/data science. Research assistants are involved in a wide range of tasks in the research process, including participant recruitment, data collection and management, literature review, study design, and lab protocol development. Research assistants can gain valuable skills in empirical research and project management for future careers in and outside of academia. Research assistants are expected to volunteer for 4–8 hours per week, pending fluctuations in lab operations.
To apply, email email@example.com with the headline “Application for volunteer research assistant” and attach three documents: (1) an unofficial transcript, (2) a resume/CV, and (3) a cover letter that briefly describes your interests (e.g., topics or research tasks you are interested in). Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
