The lab is always looking for undergraduates that are interested in obtaining research experience. Undergraduates play an important role in our research and many projects would not be possible without their help. We strive to train students in all aspect of our research with the ultimate goal of helping them become scientists. Job duties depend on the season but typically include animal husbandry, conducting field surveys and experiments, processing samples from the field and past experiments, DNA extraction, qPCR, data entry and analysis, and equipment construction. When students start in the lab, they typically volunteer 10-20 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters.
Students interested in working with us should send Dr. Hoverman their CV/resume and a brief statement discussing research interests and why the want to work in the lab.
