Undergraduate volunteers needed for fate and transport of nanoparticles 
in environmental media

The Keller Laboratory at the UCSB Bren School of Environmental Science 
and Management is seeking 1 -- 2 highly motivated undergraduate 
volunteers *to start in August 2010*. The students will be working on a 
project to study the fate and transport of engineered nanoparticles in 
different environmental media, using state of the art analytical 
instrumentation. The work will be primarily experimental, and the 
student(s) will be expected to prepare solutions and suspensions and to 
prepare starting materials, using basic lab equipment such as a pH meter 
and a analytical balance, while keeping good records of the experimental 
work. Students should be able to commit to regular scheduled hours (a 
minimum of 8 hours per week). Students might be required to attend lab 
group meetings and to be assigned relevant scientific literature search. 
There is the possibility of earning research credits, doing an 
independent honors project, or financial retribution as a lab assistant 
based on individual performance during the probationary period. We 
prefer sophomores and/or juniors majoring in 
chemistry/biochemistry/chemical engineering/environmental science with a 
GPA of 3.4 or higher, and who are familiar with analytical and wet 

Interested undergraduates please e-mail a resume (listing the chemistry 
coursework taken / in progress), and the questionnaire below to Milka 
Montes at mmontes at bren.ucsb.edu <mailto:mmontes at bren.ucsb.edu>. Selected 
candidates will be contacted for an interview. Thank you!

Please complete the following questionnaire and e-mail it along with 
your resume to Milka Montes at mmontes at bren.ucsb.edu 
<mailto:mmontes at bren.ucsb.edu> as an attachment.

How many quarters can you work in the lab? Will you be available to 
volunteer/work in the lab?

Do you plan to go on to Graduate School, Medical or Pharmacy School?



Dr. Arturo Keller's research group is seeking motivated and energetic
undergraduate students to work in the lab. Could you please circulate
this advertisement to your student body? Thank you for your time.
