I’m looking for volunteer research assistants to work within the newly formed Experimental Psychopathology Lab as part of a range of projects using different statistical and experimental techniques to explore the mechanisms involved in the emergence, maintenance and treatment of anxiety disorders.
Ideally, applicants will have a very strong grasp of English and Cantonese and they should be comfortable working independently and in taking initiative where necessary.
There is no necessity for applicants to have existing statistical or experimental expertise but you should be passionate about Psychology and about learning new skills and you should at least not be afraid of SPSS. As such, students at all levels will be considered.
Although this is a volunteer position, it is hoped that this will feed into publications and paid opportunities in the future.
If you’re interested, please email me at email@example.com with a brief description of yourself, any experience you might have in the field and why it is you’re applying.
