Voluntariado de verano en Alaska (USA)

Undergraduate or graduating senior internship position available in Summer 2016 to participate in a multi-institution research project on adaptation of plants to climate change in Alaska. The internship consists of a paid assistantship for June, July, and part of August.

Students will work long hours under rugged field conditions, with the likely chance of encountering rain, snow, cold, wind, and mosquitoes (not all at once). Most of the time you will stay at the Toolik Lake Field Station (http://toolik.alaska.edu), which has modern facilities. However, willingness to camp in tents and occasionally live in primitive camping conditions (e.g., no showers) is a must. Neat handwriting, accurate note taking, and careful attention to instructions are required. In addition to assisting with measurements and data collection in the field and the laboratory, you will be expected to develop an individual research project related to the larger project goals. For more information see http://ecotypes.weebly.com. Applications from minorities, women, and first-generation college students are encouraged.

Dates: You must be available for 4-6 weeks.

Application: Please submit a letter of application for the internship to Dr. Ned Fetcher (ned.fetcher@wilkes.edu), including (1) contact information (phone number, email address), (2) a description of your background in the area of ecology or evolutionary biology, (3) any past research experience you have had, (4) career goals, and (5) any special skills or personal attributes you have that you believe would qualify you for the position. Please include undergraduate transcripts (unofficial copies OK). If possible, also include the name and contact information for a person that could act as a reference.

Transportation to Toolik Lake (including airfare), food, and lodging will be paid for the participating student.

Deadline: 1 May 2016
