DEADLINE: April 12, 2013
In partnership with Alberta Gambling Research Institute (AGRI), the University of Lethbridge seeks a scholar to fill a position as an AGRI Research Chair. The AGRI Research Chair will generate new knowledge that will increase understanding of gambling behaviours and its consequences and will contribute to enhancing the province's capacity to provide evidence-informed decisions regarding the development of responsible gambling policy and processes.
This study published in the February 2013 edition of Frontiers in Psychology examines the idea that the Gambler's Fallacy (the misonception that the probability of the next event is influenced by previous events) is a maladaptive result of the low-level neural processes that evolved to facilitate search behaviours.
The Manitoba Gambling Research Program is now accepting proposals and grant applications for 2013; new Grant Guides are available on our website. Research opportunities are available for researchers across Canada.
Letter of Intent (LOI) for Large Grants (up to $450,000) March 20, 2013
Conference Grants (up to $2,000) are accepted year-round
DEADLINE: April 1, 2014
As of April 1, 2013, the Manitoba Longitudinal Study of Young Adults (MLSYA) Data Access Program will begin accepting applications from researchers who would like to use this unique dataset for their own research studies.
The MLSYA followed a longitudinal sample (n=679) of 18 to 20 year olds from across Manitoba over a five year period from 2007 to 2011.
Although the MLSYA was designed as a gambling study, the dataset contains a wealth of instruments that could be used to answer diverse research questions about the changing behaviours of young adults.
