Apply to do your Undergraduate Thesis in the Lydon Lab

 

 

Thank you for your interest in completing an undergraduate thesis in the Lydon Lab. Each year the Lydon Lab invites students enrolled in an undergraduate thesis course at McGill to apply to the lab. Applications are collected throughout the Spring and Summer and interviews are typically conducted the first few days of the Fall term or the week prior to classes starting although a returning honours student (U3) might be contacted before then. If a candidate is selected, she or he will likely work jointly with a graduate student and Dr. Lydon. Occasionally, a student works solely with Dr Lydon with some technical assistance from the lab coordinator. Students who are interested in doing an undergraduate thesis in the Lydon Lab should read and fill out the document below. Please e-mail the completed form, along with your CV and unofficial transcript, to the lab coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Apply to be a Research Assistant in the Lydon Lab

 

Thank you for your interest in a position as a Research Assistant (RA) in the Lydon Lab. The Lydon Lab hires RAs through the Work Study program on campus, usually in the early fall each school year. We rely on RAs to help to make research run smoothly in the lab. Tasks include recruiting and scheduling participants, entering and proofing data, keeping the lab organized and in tip-top shape (e.g., filing, labeling, moving boxes and performing computer maintenance), and helping the grad students and lab coordinator as needed (e.g., performing literature searches or running errands). Sometimes RAs will also run studies, though usually undergraduate thesis and graduate students run their own studies. A background in psychology is strongly preferred; some research experience and bilingualism are assets. If you would like to apply to work as an RA in our lab, please e-mail a cover letter, CV, and unofficial transcript (as PDF or DOC format) to the lab coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots.
