The North Carolina Agromedicine Institute welcomes the opportunity to provide research assistantships at multiple levels for undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students. The research assistantships will accelerate the ability of students to collaborate with leading scientists to explore the ecological, epidemiological, and community-based rural health and safety questions through application of ethical research methods in diverse agricultural environments. Research assistants are screened for interests and academic capabilities to design, implement, analyze, and report research findings as a valued member of a designated research team. Selection of research assistants is a competitive process and outcome measures will include regional, state, or national presentations as well as co-authorship in manuscripts developed for publication.
