Undergraduate Students

Research and internships experiences are available in the IRYSPAH to highly motivated undergraduate students. We are looking for students who are able to commit to at least one full semester to any of our projects. Activities include helping with data collection, data analysis, literature review and presentations. Students will get mentored opportunities to participate in manuscript writing, conference presentations, and especially present some of the data to the annual University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Dr. Leps Malete

Graduate Students

IRYSPAH is currently recruiting highly motivated graduate students at the masters and doctoral level whose research interests closely align with the mission of the Lab. Students receive individualized research training and opportunities in teaching, mentorship and professional development. Graduate students will be actively involved in research projects within the Lab; doctoral students will also be encouraged to develop and execute their own independent projects. Prospective students should email Dr. Leps Malete well in advance of the application deadline and include a copy of their CV, undergraduate or master’s GPA. Learn more about our master’s program or our doctoral program in Kinesiology.
