Somneuro Lab Research Assistant Application
Faculty Advisor: Dr. Rebecca Spencer.

Thank you for your interest in our lab! Our Undergraduate Research Assistants play a key role in our research, and this is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience. Our research is focused on sleep and memory, and we are currently studying infants, preschool-aged children, young adults, and older adults using a variety of techniques.

While we do our best to match Undergraduate Research Assistants with projects relevant to their interests, please note that assignment to a study is based primarily on schedule and availability.

If you have any questions about the status of your application with us, please send an email to sclaire@umass.edu
