In the Laboratory

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Are you interested in making your own scientific discoveries?

Our lab offers opportunities for undergraduates and highly motivated high school students to perform original research on a wide variety of topics. Preferably, undergraduates would join the lab as volunteers (minimum 9 hours per week) starting their freshmen or sophomore year.

Students who demonstrate sincere interest will be invited to continue participating in different research projects throughout their college career, eventually culminating in an independent honors thesis project. Research can be conducted for credit during the fall and spring semesters. To apply, please send a resume and your interests to jonps [at] austin [dot] utexas [dot] edu.
