Research Opportunities in the Mitra Lab
Mitra lab is not going to accept any new research students in summer 2022. Interested undergraduate students can email Dr. Mitra in late July 2022 to find out if research assistant positions are going to be available in fall 2022.

Career Mentorship ProgramFor Current UWG Students
Students from my research lab have been accepted into STEM graduate programs (Ph.D.) with full funding at the University of Cambridge (UK), UC Berkeley and Michigan State University; Advanced Academy of Georgia have been accepted into undergrad programs at University of Pennsylvania and at UC, Los Angeles. Undergrads have joined as research associates at Emory University and at Algenol biofuel. Many of them joined MD and Pharmacy programs at reputed universities (Georgia Regents University, Mercer University in Georgia, Upstate Medical University, New York, Mercer University, GA and University of Florida, Gainesville) and are now MDs and Pharmacists. One undergrad working at Post Market Clinical specialist at ALKU Quality (a firm that focuses in the areas of quality and compliance within the medical device, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and related industries) at Waltham, MA. and another has joined as NIH postdocotral fellow after graduating from University of Cambridge (UK). Many of these successful students are first generation college graduates.
I have initiated the work of creating an undergraduate mentorship program that will bridge former UWG biology majors, who have successful careers in STEM fields, with current UWG STEM majors. My former successful UWG Bio major students are sharing their career experiences and offering valuable mentorship to guide the UWG Biology major students in their career paths. Topics of interest in the program are: different jobs for Biology majors, preparation needed for such jobs, CV and personal statement writing, preparation for a job/school interviews and even going through a “mock” interview” via Skype. The bridge currently operates informally via e-mails, Skype, professional (LinkedIn) and social network (Face Book) websites and to some extent via my research lab website.
Current UWG Bio major/graduate students are welcome to contact me in person (room 253 or room 221 of the Bio building) or via e-mail, if they need career guidance from one of my former successful research students.
