Dr. Prime and the Prime Family Lab are committed to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. We encourage individuals of all racial/ethnic backgrounds, religions, gender identity, sexual orientation, and abilities to apply to join our lab.

Prospective Graduate Students in Clinical-Developmental Psychology

Dr. Prime supervises MA- and PhD-level students in the Clinical Developmental program at York University. Interested students should apply through the program admissions website. Prospective students are welcome to reach out to introduce themselves at the time of application; however, Dr. Prime will not hold meetings or interviews prior to applicants being short-listed with the program.


If interested in working under the supervision of Dr. Prime, please indicate as such in your admissions package and describe your interest and related experiences. You are welcome to email Dr. Prime in advance; however, she is on maternity leave for the 2022-2023 academic year and thus may not respond (this is not indicative of the strength of your application or fit with the lab). 

Prospective Undergraduate Students

We are currently seeking undergraduate students for the 2023-2024 academic year, in the roles of thesis students, independent research project students, and/or research assistants. Interested students should email the lab at to request an application. Candidates will be short-listed and interviewed based on aligned interests, relevant research experience, grades, and available opportunities. We have opportunities for all levels of trainees and encourage you to apply if our research program interests you!


If you are interested in learning more about our research program, applying to join the lab as a graduate student or research assistant, or any other inquiry, please contact Dr. Heather Prime, lab director, at or the lab email
