Join the HEAL Lab

One important objective of the Healthy Eating and Activity Laboratory is to help students, both undergraduate and graduate, at UT understand how to counsel families and adults, implement evidence-based lifestyle interventions, and conduct research. Preference is given to individuals who can commit to two or more semesters. Prior research experience is helpful, but not necessary. Duties vary but can include assisting with participant recruitment; conducting assessments; conducting laboratory protocols; and coding and entering data.

Undergraduate Research Assistant Position Description

Undergraduate Research Assistant Application

Graduate students may gain research experience conducting clinical diagnostic interviews, aiding in treatment development, facilitating group interventions, assisting with data analysis, and other laboratory functions. They may also assist in presenting study results at professional meetings and in scientific publications.

All students attend a weekly lab meeting in which we discuss ongoing research within the lab, as well as current literature and issues surrounding research in eating disorders and obesity.

If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please contact Dr. Hollie Raynor.
