    Preferred major: Any engineering or basic science major

    Year in college: 2 years remaining in undergrad preferred

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    My lab is looking for talented undergraduates with previous laboratory research experience to work on projects with a graduate student, postdoctoral fellow or research professor. The research will require a commitment of 2 years in the lab (including at least 1 summer) and 15 hours/per week during the school year. If you wish to attend graduate school in biomaterials or tissue engineering research after graduation, this will certainly be a good experience for you and could result in authorship on conference abstract(s) and/or manuscript(s). The position will require careful time management between course work and lab work, but if you are passionate about research this will be a rewarding experience. If this research position sounds interesting to you AND you already have some prior laboratory research experience, please contact me with a copy of your resume (with GPA). I look forward to hearing from you.
