Research Assistant/Technical Positions
We are always looking for a part-time computer technicians/programmers and students interested in psycholinguistics, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience to assist with ongoing cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience projects. McGill work-study eligible students are especially encouraged to apply. If you are interested, please email a CV, unofficial transcript, your availability, and a short note describing why you desire the position to Prof. Titone.

Postdoctoral studies
If you are interested in joining the lab as a postdoctoral fellow, please contact Prof. Titone. Under most circumstances postdoctoral fellows secure their own external funding, however, we routinely work with qualified candidates to create a successful proposal. There are also additional sources of support for postdocs within McGill that are possible to obtain.

Graduate studies
Applicants with research experience in any combination of cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, eye-tracking, ERPs, or functional neuroimaging are especially encouraged to apply. It is strongly advisable to apply for external fellowships/scholarships to support your graduate studies (e.g., NSERC, SSHRC, or Provincial student fellowships). Note that the deadlines for these fellowships/scholarships are in the Fall semester of the year prior to your hypothetical graduate studies start-date.

Undergraduate studies
If you are interested in joining the lab as an undergraduate student (e.g., honours, Psych450, volunteer, etc.), please send Prof. Titone an email with your CV attached that describes your research interests, course background, and why you wish to join our lab in particular. Because of high demand, we cannot accept all students. Our selection criteria include (1) genuine enthusiasm for research, (2) any specialized programming or statistical skills, (3) being responsible, detail-oriented, and organized, (4) being intrinsically motivated to solve problems in a resourceful and independent way, (5) having the confidence to ask questions when you don't understand something, and (6) being a good lab citizen.
