Opportunities For Undergraduates in the Kaye Lab

We are often looking for qualified undergraduates to work in the lab and field. Students often start as paid research assistants working 5 to 20 hours per week. Undergraduate research assistants work closely with faculty, grad students, postdocs, technicians, and other undergrads and attend regular lab meetings. Eventually, most students enjoy the work so much that they want to design resarch of their own. Students working on independent research projects get course credit and have the opportunity to apply for grants from the College to fund their work.

During the summer we often hire undergraduates to work full time as field and laboratory research assistants.
