NDL: MEMBERS
Interested in becoming a member of NDL?  NDL is always looking for the highest caliber Ph.D. students and Post-Doctoral Research associates.  We do accept some M.S. students, but less frequently than Ph.D.  New positions depend on availability of funding.  Typically new students are brought on only if we can provide them with a full Research Assistant salary and materials/lab/travel funds.  ALL interested candidates should send a resume and at least two references that may be contacted.
