The Stuttering Lab welcomes bright, self-motivated students who are eager to learn about the scientific process and social-emotional aspects of stuttering. Students from marginalized and diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.

To facilitate a productive experience for all, undergraduate and master's students who join the lab are required to dedicate at least 5 hours per week in the lab (either volunteering or earning 2 s.h. of research credits per semester), for at least two consecutive semesters. Student responsibilities vary depending on the projects, lab needs, and students’ interests (e.g., conducting literature reviews, developing research questions, preparing research tasks for participants, collecting data from participants, organizing and coding data, disseminating research finding through posters and research articles, engaging the public about stuttering through the lab’s social media presence). In addition to these tasks, students are expected to participate in weekly lab meetings which may include brainstorming, problem-solving, peer-mentoring, and student-led journal/podcast discussions.

If you are an undergraduate or master's student and would like to connect with Dr. Rodgers about the possibility of joining the lab as a research assistant, please follow the link below to complete a brief interest survey, and she will follow-up with you.  Please note that the lab is full for Fall 2023.

If you are a prospective PhD student, please reach out to Dr. Rodgers directly via email.
