Summer Undergraduate Research Project

The Rieseberg lab at Indiana University is looking for a
highly-motivated student to participate in an evolutionary genetics
research project this summer. The project will examine the
evolutionary and ecological basis for flowering time divergence in the
silverleaf sunflower, Helianthus argophyllus, which is native to
coastal south Texas.

The project participant will gain experience in fieldwork and data
collection by independently managing one site of a large evolutionary
genetics experiment, either at the Welder Wildlife Foundation Park
near Sinton, TX or the Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research
Reserve headquarters in Port Aransas, TX. Participants will also have
the opportunity to develop an independent project of their own design.

The successful applicant will be efficient, self-motivated, and pay
careful attention to detail. Applicants must be able to tolerate (or
enjoy) working outdoors in any type of weather, must have a valid
driver's license, and must be current full-time students
(undergraduate or graduate) at an accredited post-secondary
institution. Unfortunately, students who are graduating Spring 2011
are not eligible for this position. Previous research experience and
access to a vehicle are helpful, but are not required. The participant
will receive a stipend of $4,000 for the summer.

To apply, please send a cover letter and curriculum vitae along with
two references (academic or work-related) to Brook Moyers
(brook.moyers@gmail.com). Applications are due March 4, 2011. To
