Graduate

If you are interested in applying as a Masters student, I will be accepting applications this winter (2020) to start in the 2021/2022 school year. Information for prospective students can be found here. Prospective students should apply through Cognitive, Developmental, and Brain Sciences, and I will also consider exceptional students through the Program in Neuroscience.

Priority will be given to strong applicants interested in researching multisensory integration using cognitive neuroscience methodologies.

Please note that at this time the lab is NOT taking applications for students entering the Clinical Psychology Program.

If you are considering applying I strongly recommend getting in touch via email prior to applying (rsteve28@uwo.ca).

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you taking students for the 2021-2022 school year?

Yes, but only in Cognitive, Developmental, and Brain Sciences or the Program in Neuroscience.

Are you accepting clinical applications for the 2021-2022 school year?

No.

I am not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada. Can I still apply? 

Yes, though the funding opportunities (which are required for entrance) are much, much more competitive. 

Do I need to have experience with children or autism?

No. Much of the work the lab does is basic research, or work with clinical populations that are neither children or autistic. 

Do I need to be interested in multisensory processing?

In general, yes, as that is the topic that “glues” the lab together. With that said, I am open to applications of excellent students that are interested in sensory processing more broadly.

Where do I find information about the program?

For the psychology program, HERE. For the Program in Neuroscience, HERE.

What is the stipend for graduate students?

Funding information can be found HERE. Note that students joining my lab through the Program in Neuroscience will still be funded through the Department of Psychology, so this applies to all applicants. 

What will make my application better / what skills should I be working on before applying?

Qualitative methodology including stats and research methods, coding ability (for example Matlab or R), and method-specific experience, especially on the coding or analysis side (for example fMRI or EEG experience). 

Do I need to take the GREs?

For me, no. The GREs are known to be biased in terms of both race and sex. Check the program guidelines though, as different programs have specific requirements and some may require GREs at the program level for entrance.
