Online Food Study with Reimbursement

The Synergy Lab at Yale-NUS is recruiting healthy participants to explore how technology shapes the experience of food. Participants will be reimbursed $5 for a week-long study monitoring your everyday habits.

Do you qualify? We are looking for Singapore-based participants with the following characteristics: (1) between 18-49 years old; (2) own a smartphone and willing to use it for the duration of the study, and (iii) without any food allergies or history of medical / psychiatric conditions / eating disorders.

What will participation involve? This study simply requires you to complete a few short questionnaires. Additionally, we will send you a maximum of 7 short messages per day for 1 week (via phone-based Facebook messenger). Each time we ping your phone, we will ask you short questions (1-10 mins duration). You will receive SGD $5 for participating, provided you respond to at least 80% of the total number of prompts.

Predicting Outcomes in Romantic Relationships

The Synergy Lab at Yale-NUS is recruiting couples as part of our research on romantic relationships. Each couple will be reimbursed $80 for your time ($40 each separately).

Do you qualify? We are looking for any Singapore-based Chinese couples who are: (1) in a current, heterosexual romantic relationship (of 0-6 months in duration). (2) Both individuals must be between 18-30 years old. (Parental consent must be obtained for non-NUS students aged <21 years old). The participation of both partners is essential for this study. 

What will participation involve? Depending on the study, participation will require 4 visits to the lab individually (total time: ~120 minutes). This will involve: taking photographs of you, completing questionnaires, and completing computerized tasks. Additionally, we will make 2-3 follow-up phone calls or emails (~15 min each call) where you will be asked to complete questionnaires about your relationship over a 6-month period.
