Arizona State University

The Cooper Biology Education Research Lab at Arizona State University is recruiting graduate students!

Broadly, our lab studies equity and inclusion in undergraduate biology education. The largest area of our work focuses on how students' mental health, particularly anxiety and depression, affects their experiences in different biology learning environments. You can read about the ongoing areas of research in the lab here!

At ASU, students can earn a Masters or PhD In Biology doing exclusively biology education research. Coursework is flexible and allows students to supplement biology classes with coursework to strengthen their education research skills (e.g. courses in statistics, learning sciences, psychology).  ASU is also home to a number of excellent discipline-based education researchers as well as the Research for Inclusive STEM Education (RISE) Center, a research center focused on equity and inclusion.

Priority deadline for our program is December 1st.  Our program does not require the GRE.  Please read more about our program and admissions process on the Cooper Lab website or on the SABER website
