Student Opportunity  

Dr. Mary Tierney is currently seeking a motivated student wanting to pursue a Master of Science degree at the Institute of Medical Sciences, University of Toronto.  The student will work with her on an innovative study to examine the neuropsychological effects of different treatments for breast cancer in older women.  The funding for this study begins in April 2015, and therefore we are interested in a student who would be able to work as a summer student on the project and then enroll in the MSc program in the fall. The student will work with an interdisciplinary team from psychology, medical oncology and biostatistics.  The student will learn about patient recruitment and will be trained in the administration of neuropsychological tests and other measures.  The student will also have the opportunity to learn descriptive and inferential statistical analyses.  Under Dr. Tierney’s guidance, the results of this innovative study will have the potential to be disseminated in top international peer-reviewed journals and presented at conferences.

Please send curriculum vitaes and letters of interest to Dr. Mary C. Tierney (mary.tierney@sunnybrook.ca)
