Research Opportunities with Dr. Wing


Interested in research?

I am looking for interested undergraduates to work in the lab. An internship can be done several ways, depending on your interests, needs and eligibility for work-study.

Undergraduate Research (Biol 492). Biol 492 is an independent research project that can be worth between 1-3 credits per semester. It can be repeated for a total of 8 credits. The student should expect to spend a minimum of 3 hours of hard work every week of the semester to gain 1 credit; but it is important to realize that successful research generally demands dedication beyond the minimum requirement. There is no set pay for Bio 429 students, but I will work with dedicated students to obtain funding.

Work-study program: Students who qualify for financial aid can join the lab as work-study students. Students will receive $2000 per semester through this program. Contact me and/or the financial aid office if you are interested.

Useful links: There are other opportunities each summer. Contact me if you are interested in applying for one of the programs described below.
