Research Opportunities


Getting Involved in Research

We encourage students to take part in research and offer research opportunities at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Undergraduate research assistant volunteer positions pair students with research faculty members or graduate students, offering direct mentorship. Many students acquire letters of recommendation, involvement in authorship, abstracts or papers, and a resource for working on an honors thesis through our research opportunities. Research assistant positions in Human Physiology labs are posted on Handshake, and students serving in these positions are eligible to enroll in HPHY401-Research credits. If you have questions about getting involved in research or earning academic credit email our Director of Internships & Career Readiness, Amy Sibul
