Join us

The Language and Multilingualism Lab is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Kanien’kehá:ka of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Huron/Wendat, Abenaki, and Anishinaabeg. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehà:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Our lab respects and honours the diverse histories, languages, cultures, and experiences of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and First Peoples of Canada.

We extend this respect to the diversity of backgrounds in our community. This includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, cultural identity, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, language background, ability, socio-economic status, and religion. The Language and Multilingualism Lab is committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion in achieving and sustaining excellence in our science and public outreach. To this end, our lab works actively to create and maintain an environment of safety, mutual respect, and support. We aim to create an inclusive environment that brings together diverse perspectives from our students and members of the community. We acknowledge the history of racism and discrimination in Canada and in our field of Psycholinguistics, and we commit to actively dismantle systems of oppression and discrimination that continue to harm members of our community.

Additional information about joining the lab:

Research Assistant/Technical Positions

We are often looking for part-time programmers and students interested in psycholinguistics, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience to assist with ongoing cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience projects. McGill work-study eligible students are especially encouraged to apply. If you are interested, please email a CV, unofficial transcript, your availability, and a short note describing why you desire the position to Prof. Titone.

Postdoctoral Research

If you are interested in joining the lab as a postdoctoral fellow, please contact Prof. Titone. Under most circumstances postdoctoral fellows secure their own external funding, however, we routinely work with qualified candidates to create a successful proposal. There are also additional sources of support for postdocs within McGill that are possible to obtain.

Graduate Research

Applicants with research experience in any combination of cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, eye-tracking, ERPs, or functional neuroimaging are especially encouraged to apply. It is strongly advisable to apply for external fellowships/scholarships to support your graduate studies (e.g., NSERC, SSHRC, or Provincial student fellowships). Note that the deadlines for these fellowships/scholarships are in the Fall semester of the year prior to your hypothetical graduate studies start-date. 

Undergraduate Research

If you are interested in joining the lab as an undergraduate student (e.g., honours, PSYC450, volunteer, etc.), please send Prof. Titone an email with your CV attached that describes your research interests, course background, and why you wish to join our lab in particular. Because of high demand, we cannot accept all students. Our selection criteria include (1) genuine enthusiasm for research, (2) any specialized programming or statistical skills, (3) being responsible, detail-oriented, and organized, (4) being intrinsically motivated to solve problems in a resourceful and independent way, (5) having the confidence to ask questions when you don't understand something, and (6) being a good lab citizen.
