Please email a cover letter together with a CV and a copy of your transcript. You can then apply online by visiting the program website.

Please visit the departmental website for more information about admission requirements to each program.
Dr. Yakovenko may accept 1-2 exceptional honours students per year. These students will typically be enrolled in the Psychology undergraduate program and have a strong interest in research. Accepted students will design a new project in collaboration with Dr. Yakovenko or work on an existing one that is being conducted in the lab. To discuss options about joining the honours program, please contact Dr. Yakovenko at email@example.com. Information about requirements to join the honours program in Psychology are available on the department website.
Dalhousie Psychology students have the option to conduct a supervised research project in the lab during their third year of study. PSYO 3001 or PSYO 3000 projects are recommended as an introduction to lab-based research and as preparation for an Honours Thesis. Requirements typically include strong academic performance. If you would like to discuss enrolling in a P3000 course and be supervised by Dr. Igor Yakovenko, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Transdiagnostic Addiction Lab is always on the lookout for academically strong students who are interested in research. If you would like to discuss options for volunteering in the lab to gain research experience, please email Dr. Yakovenko at email@example.com. Volunteers are expected to contribute 4-6 hours per week to the lab. A positive volunteer experience in the lab can result in students moving on to other directed research projects with Dr. Yakovenko including an honours thesis.
