We are looking for a student interested in learning more about the adverse health outcomes associated with exposure to drinking water contaminants.  Our research would appeal to someone interested in 1) conducting experiments in the laboratory using a chicken embryo model to evaluate toxicity and/or 2) conducting epidemiology studies to evaluate risk of adverse health outcomes (birth defects and non-Hodgkin lymphoma) associated with exposure to drinking water contaminants in Nebraska.

Students wanting to apply for  Fall 2017 would be eligible.

The successful applicant will participate in data collection, interpretation and dissemination of results.
