Why and How do we Age?

Desirable candidates MUST currently be an undergraduate (sophomore or junior), be able to work between 6 to 12 hours per week during the academic year, and be able to provide their own transportation. After 6 to 12 months, students may be encouraged to conduct their own research projects under the guidance of senior scientists in the lab. The positions offer flexible hours, but the selected applicants are expected to work up to 2 weekend days per month. Excellent communication and organizational skills are essential to working with our close knit group of motivated researchers. The ideal candidates must be able to develop a good rapport with the members of the lab. No prior experience is required, and all majors are welcome.
