Join Our Lab

Interested in joining our team?

We often have openings for students who wish to gain research experience by volunteering in the lab. Occasionally we are also able to hire students through work-study, or help them apply for a research experience stipend. It is also sometimes possible to get research credit as a student working in our lab.

Our students and volunteers have helped us with a variety of projects and have been involved data collection, analysis, statistics, poster presentations, and helping write manuscripts.

Does this sound like fun to you?
