Want lab experience?
The “VCU Bug Lab” is looking for a few new research
interns (unpaid) to assist with insect rearing and field
collecting this summer and fall. Applicants must be
reliable and cooperative, and available at least 8-10 hrs a
week, especially on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
For more information stop by the Bug Lab (033 LSB; enter
through 029 LSB) or contact Dr. Karen Kester:
The REU Site: Mechanisms of Evolution is accepting applications.
This NSF supported program provides students with an opportunity to perform independent research under the guidance of a faculty mentor.
Participants receive a $5,750 stipend ($575 per week), travel subsidy and complimentary housing in a UNLV dormitory.
The program dates are May 30 to Aug 3, 2018.
Please direct your undergraduate associates to the list of mentors and the on-line application at https://www.unlv.edu/lifesciences/moereu/
The application deadline is Saturday April 7, 2018.
A complete application includes a one-page career essay, transcripts and one letter of recommendation.
Interested students may email@example.com for additional information.
Dr. Anne Stone and Dr. Melissa Wilson Sayres are currently co-chairing the Evolutionary Biology program at Arizona State University.
We are a mid-sized program with 21 current students, and an active community group including a weekly journal club with faculty and students, annual research seminar organized by students, and shared outreach events (like extracting DNA at the ASU homecoming event). Our faculty span multiple units including Biology, Anthropology, Engineering, and Chemistry.
This is a paid ($8/hour) undergraduate research opportunity. The aim of this project is to test physiological limits of heat tolerance in the highly invasive gypsy moth. We will be conducting a laboratory experiment measuring ecologically relevant phenotypes in various temperature regimes and performing a genome-wide association of genomic regions to phenotypic variation within and among gypsy moth populations.

Summer research internships 2015
Are you interested in field research experience and learning about the ecology and evolution of plants and plant-animal interactions in fragmented prairies? We are looking for 3-6 summer researchers for an NSF-funded project investigating how habitat fragmentation influences inbreeding, pollination, herbivory, and demography in purple coneflower, Echinacea angustifolia, populations in western Minnesota. We anticipate hiring 2-3 REUs, 2-3 summer field assistants, and one or two 12-month research interns. This is a great opportunity for aspiring ecologists, conservation biologists, and evolutionary biologists to gain research experience and learn about the ecology and evolution of plants in fragmented prairies!
No experience is necessary, but you must be enthusiastic and hard-working. During the summer, you will monitor natural plant populations, measure plant traits in experimental plots, and assist in all aspects of research. Undergraduate students will have the opportunity to pursue an independent project as an REU participant. Potential projects could involve hand-pollinating plants, observing & collecting insects, monitoring flowering phenology, conducting statistical analyses, or computer programming.
If you would like more information or wish to apply, please visit this
website http://echinaceaProject.org/opportunities/ or contact Stuart Wagenius. Applications will be reviewed starting 27 February 2014 for REU positions and 6 March for other positions.
