Students will apply to research laboratories (up to three) in the Biology Department. This year, we have 11 laboratories available for you (brief description of each lab available below). After a successful interview with the faculty member, students will spend few hours per week (1-4 hours depending on the agreement between the student and the professor) in the lab for interacting with the professor and graduate students in the laboratory.

Students are not expected to perform experiments nor do lab chores (e.g. dish washing). If the professor permits, students may assist a simple task assisting the on-going project.

Time table: Application widow: February 7, 2020 starting at 9 a.m. through February 23, 2020 closing at 5 p.m. 

Complete the form below and click “Submit”. Lab options are below the form.

Follow the instructions and the application period strictly. Faculty members are asked not to interview when the applicant package is not complete.
