Duke University undergraduates interested in gaining research experience or learning about Misophonia and emotion regulation are invited to join our program.

We review applicants each semester and invite select students to join the program for the following semester. Please contact us early (i.e., in the Spring or early Summer to join in the Fall Semester), with a statement about your goals, your CV/resume, if you are a Federal work-study student, want to join via practicum as a Duke student, or volunteer. Be sure to include the days/times you anticipate being available. Students are expected to commit to 8-10 hours of time per week when working at CMER.

Opportunities for students include:

  • Being a part of a large and active team with faculty, post-docs, graduate students, and other undergraduate research assistants.
  • Learning about the research process, from hypothesis generation to data collection, data analysis, and presentation of study findings.
  • Learning about data integrity and ethical considerations related to conducting scientific research.
  • Assisting with the launch of new studies and management of data in ongoing studies.
  • Whenever possible, involvement in scientific presentations (e.g., posters).
  • For students who remain with the program over multiple semesters, Independent Study projects can be conducted.
