Join us as an Undergraduate Student

By joining our center as an undergraduate student, you will gain invaluable experience in a clinical and professional research environment by working hands-on in a transdisciplinary group. Potential roles may include assisting with running human participants through protocols and coordinating appointments, developing study data management systems through the use of novel computational approaches, performing preliminary literature research, and attending bi-weekly laboratory meetings.

We are committed to providing meaningful mentorship experiences to undergraduates who are committed to making a meaningful contribution to our team. Applicants are expected to have a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and be willing to participate in all assigned lab tasks. Though GPA is extremely important, we believe that a number does not define you, and it will not necessarily disqualify your application. Involvement in our center takes many forms, such as through undergraduate research grants or honors theses, but most initial involvement takes the form of an independent study.

"Participating in research gives students first-hand experience of a potential career path..."  (Nature, July 2018).
