The OSU Wexner Medical Center COPPER lab is seeking applicants for an Undergraduate Laboratory Assistant position.
The COPPER lab is a well-funded organ transplant surgery research lab in the Medical Center, Department of Surgery. Specifically, the lab is looking for 1st or 2nd year undergraduate students with little to no laboratory experience, who are interested in getting their foot in the door with a biomedical science research laboratory.
Candidates do not need any prior research experience; they will learn everything they need for the job in the lab. They will spend the first 3-6 months completing all of the required medical center onboarding, security, safety and laboratory training. Students will also learn the primary support duties that keep the lab operational, including fundamental skills like sterile technique, chemical handling, and safe operation of equipment. They will then work one-on-one with the research scientists and staff in the lab to learn core experimental techniques in molecular biology, tissue culture and/or animal handling (depending on their interest).
This can serve as the first opportunity to get research experience or formal research credits. But if you’re looking to progress to graduate, medical, dental, vet school, etc, it is also an exceptional opportunity to set yourself apart from your peers. This role can become whatever you want, including a doorway to your next stage of training, research presentations, publications, reference letters… The sky is the limit!
