Undergraduate research assistants are involved in running studies, data analysis, and collaboration with graduate students. Areas of research include voice and speech motor control, acoustic features of voice production, and functional measurements of voice and speech in health and disease. Currently we are prioritizing applications from individuals who have a valid EMT license. Because of the time and energy investment from our staff to train a new RA, all undergraduate RAs must volunteer for one semester, for at least 8hr/week. After the initial semester, if things are working well, they are often transitioned to paid RA positions.


The ideal applicant will be interested in a longer-term (multiple semesters) position. Undergraduate students are also eligible for thesis and/or senior projects in the lab. To apply for the EMT/Undergraduate research assistant position, please visit:
