Summer Research Positions and other Openings

Want to get involved?
Motivated undergraduate students who seek a supervised research experience are encouraged to contact me.

Summer research positions (NSF funded, 2010-2013)

Two positions are open for a paid summer research opportunity in the summer of 2014. CCU Biology majors are encouraged to apply for a 5-7 week research experience in plant molecular biology. Research will be performed in the Biology Department at Colorado State University, and will be under my supervision as well as the host-scientists. Airfare, on-campus housing, and a stipend will be provided.

Possible research projects include (1) microRNA regulation of selenium stress response in plants, (2) role of the proteasome in selenium tolerance

To apply: please provide an unofficial CCU transcript, resume or CV, and a brief statement of your interests in biology and possible career goals. Although not strictly enforced, students should be entering their junior or senior year in the Fall of 2014. Ideally, students will have already taken at least two of the following: genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, or a plant related class. Deadline to apply is April 25th, 2014. Please submit a hard copy of your application to my office (Swain 118)

Research opportunities during the school year
1-2 paid positions are open to perform supervised research in the Fall of 2013. I am seeking a motivated student(s) who can work between 5-8 hours a week.
