Research Opportunities in Individual BBS Laboratories

Many students choose to complete research with our BBS faculty whose research covers the areas of neuroscience, psychology, cognition, and speech and language pathology. View more information about individual research labs.

Options for Working in a Lab: Students can get independent study credit (talk to your academic advisor for options), volunteer or get paid under some circumstances.

Finding a Lab: To find a research lab the best option is to use our “Match” service where you can search by research area and find laboratories with current openings.
