Join the lab

We are always interested in talking to prospective graduate and undergraduate researchers who are interested in (1) gesture and embodied communication in STEM teaching and learning, and/or (2) the design of embodied learning environments for STEM (with and without technology).

Prospective PhD Students: You can join the EIS Lab and earn your Ph.D. in Curriculum, Instruction, and the Science of Learning (CISL) with a focus on Learning Sciences. Graduate Fellowships at the Graduate School of Education at UB can be awarded up to $38,000 per year plus tuition. See here for information about additional funding opportunities.

Current Undergraduate Students at UB: Join the EIS Lab to get research experience! We are excited to work with students in STEM fields (e.g., physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, computer science, engineering) or in social sciences (e.g., anthropology, cognitive science, communication studies, linguistics, psychology).

If you are interested in joining the lab, please email Dr. Virginia J. Flood directly at
