PhD students

PhD students interested in doing clinical research in aphasia should contact Dr. Mozeiko directly.  Some details about our PhD program can be found here.  Dr. Mozeiko will be interviewing applicants for the 2024-25 academic year.


MA students (theses)

We often have MA thesis work related to projects going on in the lab. If you’re interested in a Master’s thesis, please be in touch by your second semester of the program so we can discuss whether the thesis is a good option for you.


Undergraduate research assistants

The Aphasia Rehab Lab usually works with 5-8 undergraduate research assistants (RAs) each semester. RAs help us to run and to analyze the ongoing projects in our lab generally focused on improving the language and the quality of life of individuals with aphasia. Our work includes gathering language data from home environments, creating and implementing new treatments, and analyzing discourse. Some of our RAs are invited to volunteer their time with our aphasia language support groups. We will be taking on a few new students for the 2024-25 academic year. If you are interested please email Dr. Mozeiko with answers to the following questions:

  1. What is your name, email address, major or possible major, and class year?
  2. Why are you looking for research experience?
  3. Is there something specific that is exciting to you about the work we do in the lab?
  4. Tell me about any prior research experience you have had?
  5. What do you know about aphasia and how did you learn about it?  If you have any experience talking with someone with aphasia, tell me about that here.
  6. Is there a particular skill you would be interested in learning? (statistical methods? language analysis programs? manual discourse analysis? eye tracking?)
  7. What days/times are best for you to discuss a possible role in the lab?

In the Aphasia Rehab Lab, we are always looking for students who can come up with ideas or experiences that will extend our current work. For example, if your major was in geriatrics and you wanted to extend our Environmental Enrichment work to that population, we would love to hear about this. We are always impressed when students have done their homework come in with a good idea of what happens in the lab by having read some of our publications.
