We are looking to recruit varsity college athletes (18 years and older) to participate in a voluntary and confidential research study investigating the relationship between the male and female athlete triad and anxiety. We would like to invite your athletes to participate in the study.
This study takes 15-20 min to complete and asks the questions regarding their demographics, health behaviors such as eating habits and exercise, anxiety symptoms, and questions related to their reproductive health. There are no anticipated risks beyond what could occur in daily life, and participants will not directly benefit from being in the study.
If you think your athletes would be interested in participating, we invite you to forward the email below.
If you would like to know more about the study please feel free to contact:

The Behavioral Neuroendocrinology Lab, headed by Dr. Matthew Paul, is seeking applications for an Undergraduate Research Assistant. Interested students should complete the attached application form and email it to Dr. Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our lab investigates the neural mechanisms that regulate development of social behaviors in male and female rodents (rats and hamsters). Typical behaviors examined are play behavior and ultrasonic vocalizations (a form of social communication). Current projects are focused on the neuropeptide, vasopressin, which may have different roles for male and female social development. For more details, see our website – https://ubwp.buffalo.edu/ubbnelab/
The successful applicant will assist other students and technicians in various projects. Typical procedures in our lab include conducting, scoring, and analyzing social behavior tests; histology including immunohistochemistry; genotyping (by PCR amplification and restriction enzyme digest); small animal surgeries including stereotaxic surgeries to inject drugs into the brain; brightfield and fluorescence microscopy; and general laboratory animal care (changing cages, health inspections). While prior research experience is a plus, the student will be fully trained by personnel in our laboratory.
This position provides a wonderful opportunity to gain experience with animal research that includes many common neuroscience techniques. The student would also learn how to design experiments and to think critically about science. The position is ideal for someone interested in pursuing a career in scientific research (e.g., graduate school or pharmaceutical industry). Undergraduate research assistants are expected to devote 8-10 hours a week towards laboratory work, which in addition to work on their designated project includes training sessions, weekly laboratory meetings, and assisting with miscellaneous laboratory tasks (e.g., laboratory maintenance and cleaning).
