Research Assistant in Neurobiology of Addiction
The Herman Lab is looking for a sophomore or junior to conduct behavioral neuroscience and immunofluorescence experiments in our addiction-focused laboratory. Responsibilities include daily weighing and health checks of rats and mice, 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 and roughly 1hr/day Saturday/Sunday (times flexible). Some weekend availability is a must. No prior experience is necessary and the lab will provide all requisite training, although any previous experience with rodents or lab work is a plus. 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 Fall 2023 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, their class schedule for Spring 2023, and their anticipated summer availability. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Contact Dr. Quadir with any questions.
