Individuals interested in becoming a research assistant are expected to commit multiple hours per week to the laboratory.  EPPL personnel receive professional training with respect to operating laboratory equipment and administering exercise protocols.  In addition to assisting with exercise testing, those working in the laboratory may assume various laboratory roles, including serving as a public relations specialist, weekly meeting coordinator, or laboratory technician.  All EPPL personnel are encouraged to become actively involved in the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) at both the regional and national levels and may have the opportunity to present research findings at the annual meetings.  If interested in working in the EPPL as a graduate or an undergraduate assistant, email Dr. Connolly to set up an appointment.
