The FLC typically hires 4-6 student assistants every year to help with the day-to-day operations of the lab, answer student questions, and special projects as needed. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we will not be hiring student assistants for the Fall 2020 term. The situation may change closer to the Winter 2021 term and we encourage interested students to check with us closer to that time for more information.
