I intend to recruit undergraduate research students from a variety of backgrounds for our ongoing projects. There are a number of opportunities for students with interests ranging from animal physiology & biochemistry to bioinformatics to electrical engineering, either using existing datasets or collecting/simulating your own. Preference will be given to students who are genuinely interested in a long-term commitment to the work in the lab (multiple semesters, or better yet, multiple years). The mechanisms for joining the lab range from volunteering for a block of time each week to receiving credit hours for independent study; in certain scenarios there may also be funds available to pay a modest hourly wage.  In each of these scenarios you would be expected to contribute to shared lab projects and to participate in lab meetings/reading groups. I invite you to read about our work on the Publications and Research pages and then contact me either via email or in my office (Heald 107) to discuss these opportunities.
