Students can gain valuable research skills and experience through paid work with various research groups. Responsibilities will vary depending on the position. In general, the work is more task-oriented than research work undertaken through independent study or summer fellowship. Contact Jessica Rowland for information about available positions.
Students can gain valuable insight about facets of genome science and policy research through volunteering and shadowing with IGSP faculty. You can develop your own unique experience that is flexible to your time and interests. This could include one-on-one meetings with faculty, attendance at lab/group meetings, shadowing faculty, graduate students and fellows, and/or working with the faculty member on a research project. These experiences can be arranged directly through the faculty member or by contacting the Education Office.
