Graduate Students

If you are interested in joining the lab, please send an email to Dr. Pierce to introduce yourself and provide some information about your research interests. The Pierce Lab specifically encourages applications from individuals from under-represented groups in science.

Please click here for more information about the Graduate Psychology program at York University, and here for more information about the Developmental Science area.

Note: If you are interested in being supervised by Dr. Pierce you MUST select Developmental Science as your first choice area of specialization during the application process, otherwise she will not have access to your application.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate volunteers are important members of our team and will have the opportunity to participate in multiple aspects of the research process. This includes participation in lab meetings and journal clubs, with the potential for completion of independent or honours thesis projects. We ask for a minimum two semester commitment whenever possible, however no prior research experience is necessary to join us. If you are interested, please fill out our research interest form and email it to Dr. Pierce.
