Join the Lab

Undergraduate Research Assistants

The BEAR Lab is always seeking motivated undergraduate research assistants to join the team. Our undergraduates are intimately involved in data collection and have the opportunity to pursue their own research projects, which can be presented at departmental poster sessions or national conferences. Previous undergraduates have completed honors theses and many have received prestigious awards such as the Doctoral-Undergraduate Opportunities Scholarship and Undergraduate Summer Scholar Award.  If you are interested, please email Dr. Elizabeth Kiel ( for an application.  

Prospective Graduate Students

Dr. Kiel will be reviewing applications for graduate admission to the Fall, 2024 cohort. Feel free to contact Dr. Kiel or any of the lab’s graduate students with specific questions.
