Parents & Caregivers
Are you a parent or caregiver of a young child interested in participating in research, receiving services from a clinical research program, or advising on program development? We’d love to hear from you! Please email our research team at research@heartsandmindslab.com.

Community Agencies
Dr. Roos is open to collaborative projects with agencies working to develop, implement, or evaluate programs supporting families with young children. Locally, she works with The Wolseley Family Place, Until the Last Child Charitable Foundation, and The Seven Oaks School District. Please email leslie.roos@umanitoba.ca for more information.


Prospective Students

Undergraduate Students: Honours and/or Volunteers
We love bringing in passionate and detail-oriented volunteers who are excited about working in an interdisciplinary team environment. New volunteers and honours students are generally accepted in September and January for positions over the following year. Because most positions involve substantial training, we ask for a commitment of 7-10 hours a week for at least a 9-month period. For honours students, experience in the lab for a year prior to the start of the thesis year is preferred. If you are interested in applying, please email (1) a brief description of your interest in the lab, (2) your resume/CV, and (3) a transcript to research@heartsandmindslab.com.

Graduate Students
We are accepting graduate students for Fall of 2020. Both Drs. Roos and Giuliano may supervise or co-supervise graduate students working towards Clinical Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Brain & Cognitive Sciences, and School Psychology (thesis stream) degrees. Please contact Dr. Roos or Dr. Giuliano for more details and include (1) a brief description of your interests in the lab as well as relevant research, clinical or professional experience, (2) your resume/CV, and (3) a transcript.

Postdoctoral Scholars
We are always open to mentoring postdoctoral scholars across a variety of research and clinical practice specialties. Please contact Dr. Roos or Dr. Giuliano for more information and to discuss potential funding opportunities.

Please note: We are working to provide more paid positions in the lab and promote accessibility of training opportunities. Current volunteers often receive first priority for paid positions, but any open positions will be posted here. If the absence of a paid position is a barrier to your ability to participate, we may be able to advise on funding opportunities. The Undergraduate Summer Research Awards and Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba both offer studentship awards that have been a good fit for our prior trainees./i>
