Undergraduate Research Positions


Undergraduate Research: Text

The RIT-RISE program is designed to increase the number of underrepresented students who enter Ph.D. programs in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. The RIT-RISE program is the first RISE program to specifically serve deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

Selected RISE scholars will receive intensive training and wage support for working in research laboratories with RIT researchers and, eventually, in the laboratory of a mentor from another institution. Scholars also will attend local and national conferences, present papers and posters and publish or co-publish their work.

Dr. Dye is an approved mentor for the RIT-RISE program and welcomes inquiries from students interested in applying to the program to work in the deaf x lab. Please email for more information.

Grant-Funded Positions

The deaf x lab has several undergraduate research positions funded by research grants. These positions are for 10-20 hours per week, and involve supervised work on research projects. Students will contribute towards the success of these projects, and learn valuable research skills in the process. These positions are posted on the Student Employment Office On-Campus Jobs board when they become available.
