Undergraduate Research Opportunities

We are looking for motivated undergraduate students from any discipline who want to learn about the research process and make a positive contribution to aging science. Undergraduate research assistants may assist with data entry, coding of transcripts, literature searches and synthesis, as well as social media management across several research projects. We will provide training and mentorship. Students can earn independent study credit as follows: 1 credit = 45 hours per semester 2 credits = 90 hours per semester 3 credits = 135 hours per semester For more information about our projects, please visit

Number of undergraduates needed: 1-2
Minimum qualifications: Interest in health sciences and collaborating with others; attention to detail; commitment to attend weekly lab meetings and complete hours for credits as described above.
