In addition to our one permanent staff member, we also employ student employees. Due to the desirable nature of working in a highly technical lab like ours, job applications are quite competitive and we are able to choose from the best when hiring our student employees. Our students come from a variety of scholastic backgrounds, including biology, journalism, engineering, and art. We are proud of the high caliber of our student employees, and are equally proud of the advanced job skills they acquire, which enable them to go directly into related careers, if they choose.
If you're a student who is interested in working for us, feel free to drop by and talk with us @ Room 334 in the Rasmuson Library. Because our students eventually graduate and move on, we do end up hiring, on average, at least once a year. We may be able to tell you if we expect to be hiring soon, and what some of the job qualifications and expectations are.
