As temporary employees, students earn a salary and are expected to possess the skills required to do the assigned task when they arrive. Understanding the scientific basis for the work is generally not emphasized. Unlike research internships, research aide appointments are considered jobs.
The laboratory offers a variety of Research Aide positions ranging from long-term to short-term appointments, with both part-time and full-time options.
Temporary employment opportunities become available throughout the year as new projects and funding open up. Applicants for these open positions are selected from the current Research Aide applicant pool. If interested in this program, please submit your application to the pool for review.
NOTE: The laboratory is tentatively planning for student programs to be fully onsite during Summer 2022. However, a student’s workplace may shift to a hybrid or virtual status contingent upon local COVID infection rates. Student candidates will be notified of changes in the lab’s operational status at the time of offer and/or during their appointment.
