Research Assistant

What: Research assistant needed for projects in the Departments of Biochemistry and Drug Discovery at MUSC. Projects involve chemical synthesis, enzyme kinetics, and microbiology. A strong background in chemistry / biochemistry is preferred, but a strong desire to learn may be a suitable substitute. This is currently an unpaid opportunity, but if the student remains on the project long-term and contributes significantly to its success, it will present opportunities for authorship on abstracts and in peer-reviewed publications.
Please Contact: Jonathan Turner (MD PhD candidate at MUSC, for information.
