- About UW
The department at any one time has 30+ undergraduate students working in various research
and diagnostic laboratories. Depending on the position students obtain hands on experience
in laboratory diagnostic medicine, and laboratory or field research. Experience gained
by students includes animal autopsy (necropsy), and molecular diagnostic approaches
such as PCR, and ELISA.
Working in a laboratory builds strong relationships with mentors, advisors and other students, allowing for more solid letters of recommendation for future career paths. We encourage students to concentrate on their studies during their freshman year so they can make a smooth transition from high school to the university setting. Students can also obtain credits towards their degrees through obtaining research experience.
For employment in research laboratories please contact the faculty member directly.
For employment in the diagnostic laboratories please contact Dr. Kerry Sondgeroth with your resume and information about your interests. A list of interested students is maintained.
Resumes can also be dropped off in person at our business office:
