Undergraduate Students

If you are interested in being a Research Assistant in the lab, please complete this form. Qualified applicants may volunteer or receive course credit. We aim to review applications quarterly. However, due to COVID-19, we are not currently accepting new Research Assistants.

Students interested in completing a Capstone project should plan to work in the lab for at least one quarter before we discuss working toward a Capstone project to ensure that the lab is a good fit. If interested, please email me (ilana.bennett@ucr.edu) your CV and a statement of research interests. I accept only one Capstone student per academic year.

I am now accepting Research Assistant and Capstone students for Fall 2021.

Graduate Students

If you are interested in joining the lab as a graduate student, please email me (ilana.bennett@ucr.edu) your CV and a statement of research interests prior to submitting your application.

You can apply through the Graduate Program in Psychology or the Neuroscience Graduate Program. Carefully consider the coursework and sources of funding when deciding between these programs. The Psychology Graduate Program in Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience is best suited for students seeking training in cognitive theory, psychological methods and statistics, and human neuroscience techniques. The Neuroscience Graduate Program is best suited for students seeking training in cellular and molecular neuroscience in animal models. Students for both programs will engage in similar neurocognitive aging research in the lab.

I am now accepting Psychology students for Fall 2022 and Neuroscience rotation students for Fall 2021. Unfortunately, I am not able to accept international students at this time.

Postdoctoral Researchers

If you are interested in completing a postdoctoral fellowship in the lab, please email me (ilana.bennett@ucr.edu) your CV and a statement of research interests.
