Join the Team

The Human Factors & Aging Laboratory would be nothing without our incredible team.  The team consists of post-doctoral research associates, graduate students, and undergraduate students who are all substantially involved in the research that we do.

Postdoctoral Research Associates

We are seeking two postdoctoral research associates with interests in aging, health, and technology. These positions will be supported jointly advised by Dr. Wendy Rogers (Director of the Human Factors and Aging Laboratory) and Dr. Raksha Mudar (Director of the Aging and Neurocognition Laboratory). The positions are for one-year initially but renewable for up to three years. The overall goal of our research is to support successful aging for older adults with and without mild cognitive impairment (MCI) through technologies. The behavioral focus areas are health self-management, social connectivity, cognitive engagement, and everyday activities in the home. The technology focus areas include smartphone applications, virtual reality, digital assistants, web portals, and intelligent systems.
