For Undergraduate Students

The Soil Health Lab is both a service and teaching laboratory at Oregon State. We offer undergraduate students the opportunity to work in paid positions as student laboratory technicians.

Working at the Soil Health Lab

Undergraduate technicians are an integral part of the Soil Health Lab. They conduct soil & plant analyses, prepare samples, and assist with general lab cleaning. We enjoy working with students and providing hands-on laboratory experience, as well as an explanation of the 'why' and importance behind the analysis. We often hire every other term, so reach out if you are interested in working at our lab!
