Current Undergraduate Students:

We welcome undergraduates to our research group in Raleigh!  The Location Matters Lab welcomes students of any major or class level to work for independent study credit for one semester. No experience required. Exceptional students will be encouraged to continue for additional credit or pay depending on resources available. We work hard to help students get funding through campus research initiatives. We expect student to commit to 1 meeting per week with an adviser (graduate students, postdoc, or faculty member) and approximately 5 hours per week of work time through the semester.
