Volunteer opportunities

We welcome undergraduate students from fields such as psychology and neuroscience who want to gain experience in a clinical research lab. Many of our volunteers go on to develop independent research projects for credit, conduct honours thesis research, and/or apply to graduate or professional studies in fields such as clinical psychology, school psychology, speech-language pathology and medicine.

Graduate students

Many opportunities are available for graduate students to become involved in the Autism Research Centre (ARC). ARC faculty members have been primary supervisors for graduate students in the Dalhousie University Clinical Psychology Program and have supervised comprehensive projects for students in clinical and in developmental psychology. Several students from the Mount Saint Vincent University School Psychology Program and the Dalhousie Human Communication Disorders Program have also conducted projects in the ARC.

Undergraduate and medical students

We welcome inquiries from qualified undergraduate science and medical students interested in independent research projects.
