Wildlife and Forest Ecology Summer Research Experience.

February 7, 2014

 

Wildlife and Forest Ecology Summer Research Experience. We have received NSF-sponsored funding to hire a team of undergraduate students to conduct ecological research with faculty. Students will work closely with faculty to investigate the relationship between environmental variables, invertebrate biodiversity and forest management in hemlock-dominated woodlots. Student responsibilities will include collecting invertebrates, using wildlife cameras, identifying plants and salamanders, entering data, using GPS technology, and other field techniques. Student researchers are expected to be comfortable working independently and in groups. These positions will require long days spent working in the field under a variety of conditions including rain, heat, and biting insects. Familiarity with plant identification is preferred but not required. Contact Dr. Amy Arnett for more information (207-948-9204; aarnett@unity.edu ). The full-time positions will start May 12. Participants will receive a summer stipend of at least $1500. TO APPLY: Apply online at www.unity.edu/jobs . Please submit a resume with three professional references, a cover letter, and an employment application. Review of applications will begin February 17, 2014 and continue until these positions are filled. Any U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is currently enrolled as a student is eligible; please note that we are particularly interested in hiring women and minorities.
