Laboratory Research Opportunities for Undergraduates
Current students can gain research experience in Departmental research laboratories. Such experience will teach you what it means to do research: how to perform experiments, analyze data, make conclusions, and write papers. You may volunteer to work at the lab, obtain credit (MICR 401 and 402), or, in some cases, get paid. If you are interested in pursuing any of these options, review faculty pages to identify those performing research of interest to you and contact the faculty member directly.
Additionally, stipends are available competitively to pursue summer research projects in research labs associated with the Department of Microbiology at the University of Tennessee. Calls for applications are announced each Spring.
