Undergraduate Research Opportunities

  • Variable credits or pay

Every semester we hire undergraduate students to participate in research in various areas related to clinical research and development. Areas of study include pressure ulcer prevention, the study soft tissue physiology and tissue response to loading, evaluation of clinical instrumentation, monitoring of wheelchair and wheelchair cushion use, and more. Activities may include data collection, data analysis, algorithm development, literature review, technology development or testing. Every semester is different! Typically, students must be willing to dedicate at least 9-10 hours per week on research during spring and fall semesters, and at least 12 hours per week during the summer semester.
