Contact Dr. Hurst with questions and to express interest.

Undergraduate Research Assistants

We are always seeking talented students to help us achieve the goals of the DRL. For research assistants, the goal of laboratory research is to gain experience, learn from the graduate students and faculty, earn strong recommendations for graduate school and future careers, and gain advice from those who are more senior to you. There are several ways to get involved:

To earn a position in the DRL, you must demonstrate that you are useful for laboratory research. Examples of convincing demonstrations include:

High School Interns

The Dynamic Robotics Laboratory has had numerous successful high school students make major contributions to our robotics projects.

We accept applications for high school interns through the Apprenticeships in Science and Engineering (ASE) Program. To eager high school students, we ask that you apply through ASE and indicate your interest in one of our project postings.

*Important note: hourly paid positions are few, and held by those with skills that are critically needed by the laboratory. Whether paid or not, your motivation for working in the Dynamic Robotics Laboratory MUST be the interesting work, and the experience gained. Wages are analogous to a stipend, where the goal is to enable you to spend time doing research in the laboratory rather than working at a job.
