The Paul Nghiem Lab is a moderately sized, diverse lab with basic, translational, and clinical research projects. We study Merkel cell carcinoma; an uncommon, frequently lethal skin cancer associated with immune suppression, UV exposure, and the Merkel cell polyomavirus (see http://www.merkelcell.org). Our lab is located in SLU at the UW Medical Center, which is a quick shuttle ride away from main campus.
We are seeking a motivated, enthusiastic undergraduate to assist with general lab duties and translational/clinical studies involving maintenance of patient databases and support of clinical trials. Many of our projects involve contact with patients and other healthcare providers. Your duties would involve collecting data from patient charts, ordering tissue samples, stocking the tissue culture room, updating the website, and maintaining an accurate and up-to-date database. Students that are organized, communicative, collaborative and have a strong desire to learn about the biology and clinical management of cancer are encouraged to apply.
We will prioritize applicants who are sophomores (or exceptional freshmen) who are majoring or intending to major in a biological science and have successfully completed some relevant coursework. We will prioritize students who plan to go into healthcare or clinical research. Prior research or clinical experience is advantageous but not required. A minimum of ten hours a week is the anticipated commitment. However, participation can be flexible and you are able to set your own hours. Students must make a two-year part-time commitment during the school year and full time during the initial summer.
The Undergraduate Research Assistant position offers hourly compensation equal to the Washington State minimum.
Qualified applicants should send a cover letter, resume, and unofficial transcript to Zoe Thuesmunn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Public Health Associate Program (PHAP), a unique public health training program with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), will open its annual application period January 2–8, 2018.

- Recognition as part of the nation’s leading public health agency; associates receive a salary, paid sick and vacation leave, and health insurance, and have access to federal government support services and resources
- Formal training in key public health competency areas; associates participate in seminars, workshops, web-based training, and conferences that enhance their basic public health program skills
- Regular supervisory and mentoring support throughout the program
- Unique opportunities to build a diverse portfolio of experiences in the day-to-day operations of public health programs, qualifying them to compete for entry-level career positions at CDC or equivalent positions in other public health organizations
Learn more about the PHAP application process, discover benefits of the program, find answers to frequently asked questions, and read about associates’ experiences by visiting the Become an Associate section of the PHAP website.
