Provide Research Training Opportunities for Undergraduate and Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scientists

Current Research

List of current FARRP Research Projects.

The Food Allergy Research & Resource Program is part of the Department of Food Science and Technology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Profs. Steve L. Taylor, Joseph L. Baumert, and Richard E. Goodman serve as faculty members in the Department. Students interested in learning about food allergies and sensitivities and developing research skills relating to food allergens are encouraged to make application to the Department.

Undergraduate Students

Typically, one or two undergraduate students from each class enrolled in Food Science & Technology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are offered part-time positions in the laboratories of Profs. Taylor, Baumert, or Goodman. Initially, undergraduate students assist FARRP staff with sample preparation and other laboratory tasks. As undergraduate students obtain sufficient academic background, they often get the opportunity to work on their own research projects.

If you are interested in research on food allergies, the University of Nebraska is one of the premier research institutions in the world. Undergraduate applications are encouraged. When applying, it is also a good idea to contact FARRP so that we can know of your interest in allergen research.

Graduate Students

The Food Allergy Research & Resource Program also offers graduate training opportunities to a limited number of students. Competition for graduate training opportunities in the FARRP laboratories is keen. Research assistantships are provided but students with their own fellowship funding are especially encouraged to apply. Graduate students interested in pursuing M.S. and/or Ph.D. degrees in Food Science & Technology under the supervision of Profs. Taylor, Baumert, or Prof. Goodman should apply to the Department of Food Science & Technology. When applying, it is also a good idea to contact FARRP so that we can know of your interest in allergen research. Please recognize that we cannot possibly accept all of the students interested in food allergen research.

Postdoctoral Scientists

The Food Allergy Research & Resource Program has a very limited number of positions for postdoctoral scientists within our laboratories. Competition is especially keen for these positions. If you have an interest in a postdoctoral position with FARRP, please contact either Profs. Taylor, Baumert, or Prof. Goodman by email.

Visiting Scientists

The Food Allergy Research & Resource Program will also consider the applications of visiting scientists. Please contact either Prof. Taylor or Prof. Goodman by email if you are interested in this possibility.
