Study Recruitment

The PEARL Lab at OISE is recruiting participants between the ages of 18 and 22 for a research study on the relationship between young adults and their parents, and the impact of this relationship on risk behaviours, wellness behaviours and well-being. You must be in contact with a parent for at least 10 hours a month (including text, phone, email) and be willing to have said parent participate. The study involves you filling out one baseline survey and then completing 30 days of short surveys from home, using an app that you download on your smartphone. We will ask you to do the same thing again in a year and two more times after that. Young adults are paid for the initial survey ($20) and for the 30 days of surveys (up to $60) each year and parents are paid $20 for each survey.

Individuals who are interested in participating can contact our lab by phone or email to hear more about the study.

Research Assistant Opportunity for Native German Speakers

The Tactical Decision Making Research Group of the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Liverpool (UK) conducts research on decision making during critical and major incidents in law enforcement contexts.
We are looking for two (2) research assistants to code video and audio files as independent raters, as part of a project investigating the dynamics of crisis negotiations in light of self control and corresponding challenges.
Duration: Each rater is expected to spend about 14-18 hours on the assignment.
Location: Our principal investigator will be available to meet in the Greater Toronto Area for the time required (number and duration of meetings as agreed upon). Due to the sensitivity of the data, the opportunity does not allow remote access to the data.
Requirements: The video and audio files have been recorded in German language. Therefore, we are looking for native German speakers. In addition, assistants with prior research experience (coding video and audio files) are preferred.
Compensation: The research assistants will be compensated with an hourly rate.
Contact: Interested native German speakers can contact bzaiser@liverpool.ac.uk.
