High School Students. If you are thinking of a career in
science, opportunities are available to gain valuable research experience
through interactions with skilled technicians, students, postdocs and
faculty. Time slip opportunities may be available.
Time slip opportunities may be available during the school year
and summer through existing research grants. We also welcome students from
the Honors College,
IGERT research program
and McNair Program.
WSU-DVM student research projects:
We gladly welcome participation by DVM students in directed and independent
research projects. Past WSU DVM students included Marlene Bakko (class of
2005) who helped develop a tetracycline resistance gene microarray and she
was named a Morris Animal Foundation Scholar for her efforts and she was
included as a contributing author for a peer-reviewed publication (2003,
Antimicrob. Agents Chemother. 47:3290-3295). Samantha Lane (class of 2007)
began her work in the lab as part of her Honor's College thesis and this
work has been published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics. (2004,
Non-WSU DVM students
have an additional opportunity to participate in research at WSU
College of Veterinary Medicine either through existing research grants or
through an NIH sponsored minority student research grant. Our lab has hosted
multiple students from this program.
Graduate Students: Our lab welcomes both post-DVM and
non-DVM applicants at the Masters and Ph.D. level. A description of the
Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology graduate program and application
process can be found at
http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/depts-vmp/graduate/. Additional opportunities
are available through our
NIH Post Doctoral Immunology Training Program.
Postdoctoral opportunities: Opportunities are available
for postdoctoral studies through our recently renewed
NIH Post Doctoral
Immunology Training Program and on an periodic basis via research
High School Teachers: Please inquire if you are
interested in participating in an NSF sponsored Research Experience for
Teachers (RET) program.
Visiting scholars: We are happy to host visiting
scholars from around the world. While we do not have the ability to finance
the logistics of your visit, we are happy to provide you with an opportunity
to observe and participate in our research activities. In some cases
financial support can be obtained through international fellowships
available from organizations such as the American Society for Microbiology (www.asm.org).
