Students and Volunteers in the Chicago Area

If you are a student or postbaccalaureate seeking research experience on our projects, please contact Dr. Molly Brown at Volunteer research assistants commit a minimum of 4 hours per week and provide support to ongoing projects, including transcription, data analysis, literature searches, and IRB paperwork. We endeavor to provide enriching research experiences to volunteers who are preparing for graduate school, and our research assistants frequently participate in conference presentations and scholarly publications. Opportunities for independent study credits are available to DePaul University students.
