You can learn more with us by participating in one or more of our ongoing research studies or joining our research team as a graduate student, honors student, research assistant, or volunteer. See below for more details:

Prospective graduate students should apply to the Department of Allied Health Sciences Master’s or Ph.D. program. More information is available on the department’s website or on UConn’s graduate school webpage.
Prospective students interested in joining the Shrestha Lab should contact Dr. Roman Shrestha prior to submitting an application.

Students who qualify for the Federal Work-Study program can apply to work as paid research assistants. Interest in our Lab’s research topics is a plus. Work-study RAs typically work around 10 hours/week on a range of projects within the lab. Responsibilities include data entry and coding, literature searches, subject recruitment, and running participant interviews.

Interested students at Uconn should submit their Work-Study Program application. Others should email Dr. Roman Shrestha directly before the start of the semester to inquire about potential job vacancies.

Our lab welcomes committed individuals to apply for volunteer research assistant and honors student positions within our lab. The research assistants and the Honors students work directly under one of the lab’s graduate students or post-graduate research assistants and gain valuable hands-on research experience.

Those interested should email Dr. Roman Shrestha directly. Lab member research areas and contact information can be found here.

We are currently accepting volunteers looking for hands-on research experience in one or more of our research topics. Volunteers are not restricted to UConn students but should show a certain level of weekly commitment to research. They usually work around 6-10 hours per week but could extend their involvement to 20 hours per week maximum. They will also be given priority if/when paid positions become available. Potential volunteers should contact Dr. Roman Shrestha directly.

If you are interested in participating in one of our ongoing research studies, please visit our Research page to see a full list of research projects.
