Two undergraduate students will serve as research assistants in ongoing projects in the laboratory.  Each will assist with studies involving mice (feeding, breeding, etc) and tissues.  There will be the opportunity to learn various biochemical and molecular biology lab skills, including tissue culture.  Students must major in biochemistry or a related STEM field.  Preference will be given to students interested in pursuing advanced training in biochemistry post baccalaureate. These positions are a continuation of similar projects carried out by undergrad students for about 8 years at UNL.
