Oshkosh, WI – The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is the 3rd largest University in Wisconsin. Faculty members within the Departments of Biology and Chemistry maintain vigorous, student-centric research programs in a wide variety of research areas. Our smaller size enables faculty to work directly with and mentor student researchers. With funding from the National Science Foundation, a state-of-the-art proteomics and functional genomics core facility was recently established at UW Oshkosh. As such, UW Oshkosh faculty are ideally situated to work with student researchers investigating basic research questions with this cutting-edge instrumentation. The Oshkosh community enjoys pleasant, mild summers. The University is situated on the Fox River, while the City of Oshkosh resides on the shores of Wisconsin’s largest inland lake, Lake Winnebago. The community bustles with summer activities ranging from weekly concerts on the Fox River (http://waterfest.oshkosh.net) to a large international aircraft exhibition (http://www.airventure.org).
