Prospective Students

Undergraduate Research Team

Undergraduate students wishing to work in the All Families Lab must be reliable, conscientious, and highly motivated. Undergraduate students must dedicate between 6 to 10 hours per week and at least 12 months to the position, including summer months. Due to the nature of our work with families, evening and weekend shifts will often be assigned. Required qualifications include a minimum 3.5 cGPA with As in psychology courses, particularly in psychology statistics courses. Our lab prefers second year students who expect to stay on for multiple years and returning (fifth, sixth year) students who plan to pursue graduate studies. 

If you are interested in joining the lab, please email Dr. Kil. In your email, include your unofficial transcript and a CV/resume detailing your previous research experience.

Honours thesis: Students wishing to pursue an Honours thesis with Dr. Kil must already be working in the All Families Lab for at least 6 months. 

Reference Letters: Dr. Kil will only provide reference letters for students who have been working in the All Families Lab for at least 1 year. No reference letters will be provided to students who have only taken classes taught by Dr. Kil, without any lab experience in the All Families Lab. 

Graduate Supervision

Postdoctoral Opportunities

The All Families Lab, in collaboration with the Better Behaviours Service at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, ON, is seeking applications for one postdoctoral fellow position. The fellow will co-lead our ongoing project on parent factors relating to engagement in children's mental health programming in the Niagara (ON) region. The fellow will be affiliated with and co-funded by both  SFU and CAMH. Given the community-engaged nature of the project, the fellow must be willing to relocate to the Niagara Area or Greater Toronto Area for the duration of the fellowship. This position is for 12-months, with opportunities for funding for up to two additional years.
