Interested in gaining experience in biomedical research?
The Carter-Su Laboratory (6804 Medical Science Building II) is looking for undergraduate students interested in a biomedical research opportunity. This position is perfect for undergraduates, particularly majors in the biological sciences, who are interested in gaining research experience in the fields of cellular and molecular biology, neuroscience, and obesity. This type of research would be especially helpful for those students planning to go to graduate school in the life sciences!
Students will learn techniques such as PCR, gel electrophoresis, genotyping, mouse phenotyping, cell culture, and more. Students will also learn basic research skills such as data analysis and how to conduct literature searches. There is the potential for expanded responsibilities such as handling mice and performing minor surgeries. We require at least a 6-8 hour per week commitment. Position to begin immediately. Preference will be given to students who are interested in a long-term commitment to our lab (i.e. at least 2-3 semesters).
The goal of our research is to gain insight into genetic causes of early-onset obesity. Our collaborators have identified various mutations in the SH2B1 gene in many children with early-onset obesity. We have generated mouse models with these same mutations and are now analyzing the mice at the physiological, cellular, and molecular levels to gain understanding about the function of the SH2B1 protein in individual neurons and neural circuits related to feeding behavior.
If you are interested in applying for this position, please send a brief email to Anabel Flores at email@example.com and/or Jessica Cote at firstname.lastname@example.org with your (a) name, (b) year in school, (c) major, (d) a brief summary of your neuroscience/biology-related coursework and experience, and (e) a brief summary of any other work experience.
