Research assistants are undergraduate students at Rowan who support SEAHL through a variety of tasks. Common tasks include:

  • helping to recruit and schedule participants

  • learning how to collect and analyze data

  • presenting research in poster sessions

  • brainstorming solutions to lab problems 


Research assistants also attend weekly lab meetings and journal clubs a few times per semester. They reserve at least 8 hours per week for lab duties, and commit to staying with us for at least 2 semesters. There are paying opportunities. 

We're especially motivated to bring in first- or second-year students who may be interested in staying with us for a couple of years, but students of all levels are welcome to apply. 

If you'd like to apply, please complete the application form at this link.

I chose to become a research assistant because I was really interested in learning about how research is carried out, and I wanted to be able to experience that process first-hand. I also felt that becoming a research assistant would be an opportunity that would be beneficial to me in relation to my future academic and career goals.
