*Undergraduate Research Opportunity*

For 1-2 undergraduate biochemistry students interested in both metabolism and computer science. No prior coding experience is necessary and students will have the opportunity to design and develop prototypes under the supervision of our team’s lead software developer. Please find more information here.

Many undergraduate students work in our labs through the:

Work Study / Work Learn Learn Program
UBC Science Co-op Program
NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards

Some of our faculty will also directly hire students to work in their lab. Since these positions generally are not advertised you need to contact our professors to find out about any opportunities. Making that initial contact can be nerve wracking but UBC’s Careers Service has some tips on contacting faculty members.
