Requirements & Job Duties: Computational Evolutionary analyses of COVID-19
In an effort to enhance undergraduate participation in COVID-19 research, we are seeking a self-motivated undergraduate student majoring in the sciences. The student will be supervised by Lily Tran in the Department of Biology. The student will use their research experience in clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats Cas-9 (CRISPR- Cas9), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) approved animal research, bioinformatic tools, molecular evolution of DNA and/or protein sequence analysis to perform computational analyses of coronavirus sequences to understand COVID-19 evolution.
This temporary position requires 40 hours of work per week from 5/15/20 – 8/14/20 and applicants should be an undergraduate in the University System of Georgia (USG). The student must have access to high speed internet since all research will be performed off campus.
Primary duties: the student worker will be tasked with computational analyses of coronavirus sequences to understand COVID-19 evolution (60%), read published literature (20%), and research COVID-19 studies on animals (20%).
