Research Opportunities


Students with an interest in pursuing gerontological research can apply for directed studies under CERA members (courses listed below).

Alternatively, students can apply for a Research Assistant position. Faculty apply for a Research Assistant in March of every year and the positions become available for the summer, fall and winter semesters. Students should approach specific faculty or department heads to inquire about opportunities.

There are also a variety of grants and funds available for students to pursue and present their research both on and off campus. Check those out here.
