Graduate Students

Dr. Racine is planning to accept one new graduate student to begin Fall 2022. Competitive applicants are those with independent research experience, ideas regarding the type of research they hope to pursue in graduate school, and an interest in a future career that incorporates research.

Dr. Racine will be on leave in the fall and will not be responding to inquiries from prospective graduate students. Please peruse this website and Dr. Racine's CV to learn about the work that she and her graduate students are currently doing.

Undergraduate Research Students

All of our research student positions have been filled for the 2021-2022 academic year. 


Dr. Racine supervises undergraduate honours theses (i.e., PSYC 380; PSYC 498) as well as undergraduate research projects (i.e., PSYC 450, 494). Students will be paired with a graduate student and will develop a project that builds off of current data collections or uses existing lab data.

In the future, if you are interested, please send an email with a brief statement of interest, an updated CV, and an unofficial transcript. Please note that most undergraduate research students have served as previous volunteers in the BEEP Lab.

Volunteer Research Assistants

We are NOT currently recruiting volunteer RAs for the Summer or Fall 2021 semesters.


Volunteer research assistants gain hands-on research experience that helps prepare them for graduate school or other post-graduate opportunities. This includes interacting with participants while running studies, training in the collection and analysis of physiological data, and experience using common psychology software, such as SPSS and Qualtrics.


We require that students commit an average of 10 hours per week for a minimum of 2 semesters. A GPA of 3.5 or higher is required. If you are interested, please email us with an updated CV and unofficial transcript.
