Volunteer Opportunities

The Abilities Research Center (ARC) offers opportunities for predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees, undergraduates, residents, and international students looking to gain experience in neurorehabilitation research.

Volunteer Internship Program

Volunteers will learn about how to create hypothesis-driven research studies using data collection, data analysis, and manuscript preparation. We also have our volunteers engage with some of the technologies available at the Center based on their qualifications and skill level.

The technologies that volunteers may use include:

  • 360-degree video creation equipment
  • Lower extremity exoskeletons
  • Non-invasive brain stimulation technology (TMS and tDCS)
  • Upper extremity robotic devices
  • Virtual reality technology
  • Voice and facial recognition software

In addition, volunteers will have the opportunity to attend lab meetings, presentations, seminars, and Grand Rounds.

Volunteers may work both on site and remotely depending on their assigned project.

The eligible volunteers in this program include:

  • Residents
  • Postdoctoral fellows
  • Graduate students
  • Undergraduate students
  • High school students

We welcome new members and collaborators. If you would like to be a volunteer in our program, send your CV and a one-page research statement, including your background and an explanation of how your interests fit with the mission of the center, to abilitiesresearchcenter@mountsinai.org.
