Student Research Assistants

Nearly every semester, we offer undergraduates the opportunity to get involved in our research. We are looking for highly motivated individuals who are interested in learning about human factors and aging research. By obtaining “hands on” research experience in our lab, undergraduate assistants often find ways to apply what they have learned in the classroom to the real world. For those thinking about attending graduate school, research experience is often an invaluable consideration for your personal evaluation of whether you like research and to support your graduate school application.

You can get an idea of current projects on our projects page and of graduate student interests on the people page. We also encourage dedicated students to work with us over multiple semesters.

For more information about getting involved in our research, please contact Brian Pastor, lab coordinator, by e-mail at or call him at (217) 820-1481.
