Apply to join the Martins research lab


The Martins lab is looking for an undergraduate researcher this summer, so apply today!

Researchers in Martin's lab are studying the evolution of social behavior and sensory systems by measuring the diversification of behavior and morphology across natural populations of zebrafish from India.

Tamal Roy, a researcher in the lab, is investigating divergences in visual sensitivity and color preferences in contexts of learning and memory tasks among fish from different natural habitats and the undergraduate student would be working with him.

If accepted, you will be required to conduct experiments on zebrafish using automated systems and also other experimental setups. See Handshake #1428638.
Graduating seniors
Receive a $27,500 one-year stipend
Apply for a teaching grant

Arizona needs qualified teachers in the STEM areas — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. If you have a bachelor’s degree in any of the STEM fields, you could already be on your way to an education career.

ASU and the Tolleson and Pendergast elementary school districts are partners in the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, recruiting qualified candidates for this high-demand field. Get financial and professional support along the way.

There are only 12 spots available for this project, so apply today!

Get paid to participate in a research study
Undergraduate students are being recruited to participate in a research project. You will earm $20 for your time!

The experiment test proprioception uses a robot that moves the participant's arm from a starting position to several other positions. The participant then decides if they think the position is the same or different than where they started. We use this data to quantify how accurate people are at sensing the position of their limbs in space. We are also interested in examining the effects of non-invasive electrical stimulation on proprioception. 
 
You must come in a for a 30-minute session and also the full two-hour experiment.  Click here to see the survey participant requirements to see if you qualify.
  
Schedule your first 30 minute session before the 2 hour experiment here.
 
During the demonstration they will explain the task, provide a demonstration of the electrical stimulation, and show you the robot as well as run through a few example trials.
 
After scheduling the demo and being approved, you will be sent a link to schedule the full 2 hour session. The full experiment should be scheduled within a week of the demonstration.
 
If you have any questions, contact Josh Klein, APAcT IGERT Fellow and Neuroscience PhD candidate.
