The Lutz Lab in Translational Neuroimmunology at UIC is recruiting Honors College sophomores and juniors. We are looking for motivated students who want to make meaningful contributions to scientific research. We use cutting-edge neuroscience, immunology, and cell biology techniques to uncover new mechanisms for blood-brain barrier damage and repair. We focus on experimental mouse models of human disease including multiple sclerosis.
We require 15 hours/week during the academic year for two years, and we encourage half-time or full-time participation in the summer. Scheduling accommodations will be made for final exams week. Expect to gain skills in scientific techniques, critical thinking, and verbal/written communication through hands-on experimental science and participation in weekly lab meetings and journal clubs.
All students in the lab, including undergraduates, work hard and make meaningful contributions to scientific discoveries. You will be helping run our lab, therefore attention to detail and reliability are important.
Details about our research, undergraduate student expectations in the lab, and recent publications are available on our website www.sarahlutzphd.com. Please contact Dr. Lutz at email@example.com with your resume and a brief statement of why you are interested in joining our team!
