Location: University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON

Funded graduate and undergraduate student RA positions in environmental psychology are available at University of Waterloo, Canada. The research is focused on an investigation of the motives for conservation behavior in private landowners. Most of the land in southern Ontario is in private hand and therefore the behavior of private landowners is critical for conservation initiatives. The work takes place in cooperation with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, which is interested in using the study results for evaluating and improving conservation incentive programs.

Student RAs will be affiliated with the School of Planning in the Faculty of Environment at University of Waterloo. Faculty collaborators to the research are members of the departments of Environmental Resource Studies and Sociology & Legal Studies. Criteria for eligibility include the right to work in Canada (i.e., residency, work permit, Canadian citizenship or such). The expected start date for the graduate RA is September 2013 (or sooner) and for the undergraduate RAs summer 2013.

Applications should include a cv, letter of intent, university transcripts and a list of 3 references.
