Undergraduate Research Assistant in the School of Plant Sciences - Applications reviewed upon receipt and close on May 17

We are seeking undergraduate students eligible for the Federal Work-Study program (FWS) to actively contribute to ongoing research in the field of computational plant science. The role involves providing research assistance in the generation, annotation, and analysis of data sets. Data sets will be derived from field experiments, encompassing tasks such as collecting shoots, excavating roots, including outdoor work. Digital data will be generated by 3D scanning of gathered plant samples. Some of these data sets will undergo analysis using machine learning pipelines, necessitating assistance in annotating digital training data. Additionally, hired undergraduate research assistants will, to a lesser extent, engage in the analysis of large data sets using both trained models and conventional statistical methods.
