The WRC is always looking to assist and collaborate with investigators currently working on Military projects or looking to submit Military funding applications. We can serve as a co-primary investigator, subcontractor, or consultant on many of your military-related research. Please contact JoEllen Sefton, Ph.D., ATC, for more information.


The WRC is currently accepting applications for Ph.D. research fellows in the Kinesiology doctoral program. Interested candidates may contact JoEllen Sefton, Ph.D., ATC for more information. Please include a CV and a statement of intent and research interests. Applicants must be accepted into the Auburn University Graduate School, and meet the standards of the School of Kinesiology doctoral program. Some DoD projects may require U.S. citizenship. Typically, doctoral students begin in the fall semester, but this can be adjusted to spring or summer as projects require.

We also welcome undergraduate students and master’s students interested in working on our projects. Positions are typically unpaid, but provide excellent experience, and may fulfill research hours or internship credit depending on your program’s requirements.


New opportunities to work full-time, part-time, or temporarily in the Warrior Research Center are posted as they are established. Please visit the Auburn University Human Resources website to review positions and required qualifications, as well as to apply.


You, too, can help our service members and advance our research through a charitable donation or planned gift. We appreciate your support of the Warrior Research Center and could not continue the multitude of work we do without your support. If you are interested in contributing financially to our research, please contact Molly McNulty in the College of Education Development Office for more information.
