Subject: Laboratory is recruiting ~3 undergraduate students

Description:
The St. Leger laboratory is recruiting ~3 undergraduate students to replace
recent graduates. They will work for pay (starting at $12.50/hr) and/or
credits (up to two per semester), usually both. Hours will be negotiated, but
approx 10 hours per week. The laboratory mostly works on pathogens of insects
as a model for understanding how pathogens and their hosts in general evolve.
Other projects are being conducted on plant symbionts and mosquito control in
West Africa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_St._Leger). Student
duties will be varied. They will be expected to help graduate students with
lab maintenance, and will be taught microbiological techniques, and widely
used experimental methods for studying Drosophila, an essential model for
genetic research. They will gain experience in all aspects of our projects
including working with diverse insects, performing infections, looking at the
plant microbiome, bioinformatics, collecting and analyzing samples from field
sites, and microscopy. Many previous students have worked for several
semesters in the lab and eventually performed their own projects that led to
papers. Students must be a natural problem solver and are able to demonstrate
this when interviewing. Please send your CV to Dr. O'Brien at
