Common approaches/techniques used in the Segev lab: Cell Biology, Molecular biology, Genetics, Microscopy, Yeast Biology, PCR, Western blotting, Molecular cloning.
Qualifications of a Student:
Biological Sciences major who has taken or is planning to take genetics and cell biology.
We will only accept students qualified for Federal Work Study.
Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
We would like a student employee to work on lab duties with federal work study funding during their freshman and sophomore years. These duties include washing glassware, using the autoclave, preparation of media, etc.
At any time, we invite the student to join projects and perform experiments to be used in their Capstone research, or to gain research experience for future endeavors. This additional training is solely based on the interest and time-commitment shown by the student.
This opportunity is limited to first or second year students with the anticipation that it will be a 3-4 year commitment.
