Graduate Students for next Fall?

Interested in applying for next September? I encourage you to contact me ahead of your application. It helps me to hear about your interests, and being in contact with me will help you figure out if I am the right supervisor/mentor for you. When you email me, please let me know how you feel our research interests overlap and include a copy of your CV/resume and transcript (unofficial copy is fine).

Please note: if you are interested in clinical populations, non-human animals, or hormonal influences on behavior (as opposed to bidirectional associations or social modulation of hormones), my lab is not the right fit for you but I would be happy to recommend some excellent colleagues! We focus on sexual diversity, sexuality research, gender/sex, social neuroendocrinology, and feminist/queer science, all in humans.

You should consider applying to a postgraduate scholarship (i.e., funding for being a grad student), to add to/top up what you would receive as funding here at Queen's. There are many options, and the most common ones to check out are Tricouncil funding from NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR (which one may depend on your interests as our lab can fit all of them), the Vanier Scholarship (PhD only), the Ontario Women's Health Scholar Award, and the Ontario Graduate Scholarship. Please note that even if you're not from Ontario, you can apply to the last two to attend university in Ontario. Most (if not all) of these are only for Canadians, so check the guidelines if you are an international applicant!

Students can apply through the following programs, or be involved in them once accepted:

Department of Psychology Department of Gender Studies
