We occasionally have positions for undergraduate researchers. An excellent work ethic, flexible schedule, and genuine interest in laboratory research are required attributes of all prospective applicants. Undergraduates are required to work for at least one year in our group. Students beginning their junior year are preferred. Interested students should email Dr. Herman at jkherman@tamu.edu. The email should indicate why you would like to join the lab, your graduation date, post-graduation plans (if known), gpa, and include the contact information for at least one personal reference (ideally another professor or TA). Please indicate whether you are interested in an hourly wage or research credit. Individuals from underrepresented groups in science are especially encouraged to apply.
