Research Assistant in Neurobiology of Addiction Rodent Lab
The Herman Lab is looking for a sophomore or junior to conduct behavioral neuroscience experiments in our addiction-focused laboratory. Responsibilities include tissue processing, immunohistochemistry, and imaging as well as running drug exposure procedures in rats and mice, and assisting other lab members with their experiments (including solution prep, data entry, and other basic laboratory skills.) The position will entail approximately 15 hours of work per week, with the bulk of the hours occurring between 9AM-2PM M-F. Some weekend availability is a must. It is preferable to have 3-4h blocks of time to commit to each week. No prior experience is necessary and the lab will provide all requisite training. The ideal candidate will be responsible, punctual and able to make lab time a priority. Motivated students may have the option to complete an independent study for course credit in 2022 or an honors thesis when applicable. The Herman Lab is a diverse research team that likes to keep a lively and fun atmosphere at work while producing first-rate science. Interested students should send an email to Dr. Quadir with a brief description of why they would like to work in the Herman Lab, a resume, and their class schedule for Spring 2022. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Contact Dr. Quadir with any questions.
