Undergraduate Lab Experience - How to Apply

 

The undergraduate lab experience application is
only available to microbiology majors.

You may apply for the positions below through the undergraduate lab experience application. You may apply to a specific lab, in which case your application will be emailed directly to a representative of the lab, as well as saved in a database for one year. You may also apply to a "general-application" lab which will be saved in our database and available for all professors to view for one year. Before applying make sure you know what type of job you will be applying for (list below). An application will need to be completed for each lab you're applying to. Some faculty members will reply quickly to an application while others may not. If you do not hear back within a few weeks, it is safe to assume that the faculty member is not taking on new undergraduates at this time, however your application will be kept on file for one year.
