Undergraduate Research Opportunities¶
The Wang computational mass spectrometry lab is actively recruiting undergraduate researchers to help build out new computational tools and interactive web interfaces to make it easier for chemists and biologists explore the chemical dark matter that we can observe but cannot identify. We are looking for students pursuing degrees in computer science, bioinformatics, chemistry, or biochemistry with the following qualifications:
- Enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn new skills and tools (required)
- Proficiency in Python (preferred but other scripting and languages are good too)
Please email your transcript and resume/CV directly to Dr. Wang. Checkout the types of projects below!
Graduate Research Opportunities¶
The Wang lab is accepting both PhD and MS students through the Department of Computer Science. If you are already enrolled at UCR, reach out to Dr. Wang!
Postdoctoral Scholar Opportunities¶
Please email a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to Dr. Wang directly.
If you are not at UC Riverside but want to work with the lab, reach out to Dr. Wang!
Project Types in the Lab¶
There are several different types of projects to work on in broad categories. Honestly, longer term and bigger projects really tend to blend all of these.
- Data Science - Explore mass spec data and lets find insights in terms of fundamental chemistry or biology
- Software Engineering - Creating new software infrastructure to support open science
- Algorithms/Tools - Utilize insights from data science projects to conceive new ways to analyze mass spectrometry data
- Communication - We want to disseminate our science by creating educational tools, instructions, and tutorials
