Qualified science majors are needed during the academic year to serve as laboratory assistants.  Each laboratory assistant works in a specialized laboratory (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Microbiology, etc.) under the direct supervision of a science faculty member and the Laboratory Manager.  The position of laboratory assistant is a valuable experience, since it provides an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills beyond the classroom setting.  Laboratory assistants are selected on the basis of merit by appropriate science faculty and the Laboratory Manager.  Subsequently, these positions are approved by the Science Department Chairperson.  

The Work Study Program supports many of the available positions.  Work Study must be applied for through the Marywood University Financial Aid Office. The Science Department may provide financing for a limited number of qualified students who are ineligible for the Work Study Program.  A list of interested students is compiled at the April Student-Faculty Meeting.  Selected students will be notified in writing by the Department Chairperson, Dr. Deborah Hokien.  

Those interested in applying for a Department Paid Lab Assistant position may contact Deborah Wardach, the Lab Manager at x. 4771 or by email dlwardach@marywood.edu .
