Current Undergraduate Students:

We need to grow our undergraduate group in Raleigh!  The gesslab welcomes students of any major or class level to work for independent study credit for one semester. No experience required. Exceptional students will be encouraged to continue for additional credit or pay depending on resources available. We work hard to help students get funding through campus research initiatives.
