Research experience is an important part of an undergraduate education and can be of great benefit to the development of your professional career. I periodically accept undergraduates for training in my lab. If you are interested in hands-on laboratory work involving plant evolutionary genetics, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please be prepared to provide a CV and contact information for one or two references. If you are interested in developing your honors thesis in my lab, you should contact me no later than halfway through your Junior year. Biology majors at UMass can also apply for any positions in my lab posted in BURA.
