Dr. Steven Blanke’s lab (Department of Microbiology) is currently seeking an undergraduate student to work on a project which investigates the mechanism by which Helicobacter pylori manipulates host metabolism and immune response in order to survive in the harsh gastric environment.
Interested students should be in their Sophomore/Junior year and must be able to work summers. Research experience is preferred but not necessary. The student will be involved in laboratory meetings/discussion and SERIOUS time commitment is required. The student will be trained to perform many different techniques relating to molecular and cellular biology and he or she will also be taught the science and rationale behind the experiments.
Any interested students should email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a cover letter and CV for interview consideration. The cover letter should include how a research position will benefit the applicant and further his/her academic goals. Expected date of graduation must be clearly stated in the CV. Please respond by MIDNIGHT Sep. 2nd. Those who already applied for other positions in our lab are still encouraged to apply. No applications can be reviewed after that time. The student will commence laboratory duties immediately this upcoming Fall 2015 semester.
