9/8/20: Opening for undergraduate researcher on BiochemAR project!

The lab is looking for an undergraduate student researcher interested in developing skills in 1) designing and administering semi-structured interview protocols in a clinical interview setting and 2) transcribing, qualitative coding, and analysis of interview transcripts. The student will have the opportunity to work closely with project collaborators at UC San Diego (virtually for now, but potential for travel post-covid is possible :)), with the potential for continuation during summer months.

Please email Rou-Jia at if you have questions or interest. Ideally looking for a student to start by Week 3 in Fall 2020.
