There are three different ways to get involved as a student in the lab during the semester. To get involved as a BC student please apply HERE. If you get a page that says “resources unavailable” we are not currently accepting applications.

(1) You can attend our weekly one-hour lab meetings. This is a great way to discover whether the lab is a good fit for you before applying to be a semester research assistant (RA). Please note you must submit a full application at the link above if you are interested in attending lab meeting.

(2) You can work in the lab as a semester RA. Working in the lab as a semester RA is typically a 10-hour per week commitment, but we sometimes have a need for students working in the lab 5-hours per week. We typically require students to attend lab meetings for at least one semester prior to working as an official RA. If you make it to the interview stage of our application process we can discuss scheduling options in more detail.

(3) You can work full-time or part-time as a summer intern. We often have paid positions for Boston College students and students outside of Boston College. If you are interested please 1) fill out the application by March 14, 2020, and 2) provide one letter of recommendation to us at canine.cognition@bc.edu. 

Please note that our application and interview cycle is early, with application deadlines in November for the Spring semester, in February for the Summer semester, and in August for the Fall semester. Please see the application link above for specific deadlines for our next application cycle.
