Work Study Positions Available
- CUNDALL LAB: Animal care assistant, to care for rodents in Williams Hall. Work load is flexible but needs to be done two days a week separated by at least two days. Students interested in learning additional animal husbandry can care for various amphibian and squamate species as well. Please contact Dr. Cundall by e-mail or calling 8-3679.
- DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES (Iacocca Hall): Student(s) needed to prepare media and stock solutions for laboratory instruction along with managing chemical inventories and general maintenance of the lab (sterilization, dish-washing). Please e-mail Lee Graham if you would like to apply.
- IOVINE LAB: Are you tired of doing the same old thing? How about a new and exciting work study opportunity? Professor Kathy Iovine in the Department of Biological Sciences has just the opportunity for you. No experience is necessary, just the willingness to be trained! Responsibilities include feeding zebrafish, cleaning fish tanks, keeping fish room in order, preparing solutions and autoclaving. This position includes weekend hours. Students must be able to provide weekend transportation to Iacocca Hall on Mountaintop Campus. If you would like to apply, please e-mail Dr. Iovine. Work-study preferred.
- LANG LAB: Laboratory experimental evolution using microorganisms, combined with modern DNA sequencing technology, makes it possible to study genome evolution in real time. We are looking for motivated undergraduates to join our group. Depending on the interest and commitment level, this position could be one of active research (experimental or computational) or lab support. Molecular evolution is an interdisciplinary science and we welcome students from any of the sciences including biology, chemistry, math, computer science and engineering. For more information visit the Lang Lab website or e-mail Dr. Lang.
- LAYDEN LAB: We are looking for motivated student(s) interested in neural development and regeneration, and/or nervous system evolution to help maintain animal cultures, perform general lab tasks (making stock solutions etc.), and participate in research. Ideal students would work in the lab long term and build toward a more research-oriented role. E-mail Dr. Layden.
- Lowe-Krentz Lab: Want to gain valuable experience in a low stress environment and get
paid? Work study in the Lowe-Krentz lab in Biological Sciences is the place to do it!!! Learn basic lab maintenance, get practice making reagents and learn to use autoclaves and other equipment. Have some experience to list when you apply for summer jobs and research opportunities later. Please e-mail Dr. Lowe-Krentz if you would like to apply.
- Miwa Lab: Can you teach old dogs new tricks? Our brains learn readily in youth, but that malleability goes away in adulthood. We are studying genes which act as switches for these processes. We can control those switches and make “smart mice” through genetic engineering. Be part of this research program and have fun at the same time. The major experience involves taking care of, and experimenting on, our smart mice. Also work in the molecular biology lab, restocking and organizing the supplies. If you are interested, email Dr. Julie Miwa.
- Rice Lab: Interested in evolution? Come join our lab if you would like to learn about some of the ways you can do research in evolutionary biology. Work-study students will assist with lab support work such as lab maintenance, buffer preparation, and autoclaving. A great way to decide if research is for you! Please e-mail Dr. Rice if you would like to apply.
- RESEARCH ASSISTANTS NEEDED: Work study students are needed to care for animals, clean, organize, and assist the animal facility manager and graduate students with data collection. Biology or BNS majors preferred. Please e-mail Dr. Schneider for more information.
