Paid Research Opportunity for Underrepresented Students – SURE-EH

Supporting Undergraduate Research Experiences in Environmental Health (SURE-EH) will be accepting applications to the program from underrepresented undergraduate students enrolled at the University of Washington between May 7, 2018 – May 18, 2018.

The SURE-EH program provides up to two years of hourly employment to UW students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to conduct research in areas relevant to the environmental health sciences and the mission of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Students accepted into the program will work alongside faculty and research staff in the School of Public Health’s Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Science (DEOHS). Student researchers will be eligible for up to 2 years of funding, full-time during summer and part-time during the academic year.

We are currently look for three (3) students to work on the following research projects (full descriptions and desired qualifications are on our website):

Project # 1: Characterizing the interactions between environmental chemicals and gut microbiome during development

Project # 2: Measuring chemical markers in air and dust to improve understanding of people’s exposure to diesel exhaust

Project # 3: Investigating oxidative stress on virus-host response
