Student Aide 2015

A full-time research support position (laboratory aide) will be available
this summer (2015) for a high achieving undergraduate student. While this is
a University of Maryland appointment, the work will be performed at the U. S.
D. A. Beltsville Agricultural Research Center. Continuation at reduced hours
is anticipated for the 2015-2016 academic year. Research is on nematode
parasites of plants, and the successful candidate should have both a strong
academic record and some familiarity with basic laboratory activities
(reagent and sample preparation, centrifugation, electrophoresis, microscopy,
etc.). Thorough training in more advanced methods of protein and peptide
analysis, tissue fractionation, parasite behavior, and the use of specialized
software, will be provided. Interest in developmental or cell biology is a
plus. For further information, please forward notice of your interest,
curriculum vitae, and transcript to both Dr. E. P. Masler
([log in to unmask]), Nematology Laboratory, USDA/ARS, BARC, and Dr.
C. R. R. Hooks ([log in to unmask]), Dept. of Entomology, UMD.
