The Center for Dendrochronology has opportunities for one or two undergraduate student interns for the Spring 2012 semester.
The interns will assist researchers on projects investigating wildfire, forest ecology and water resources. Students will receive training in microscopy and dendrochronology (tree-ring dating) and the fundamentals of forest ecology. Interns will be expected to work between 5 and 10 hours per week.
Past candidates have later been hired as summer research assistants for field studies, conducted their own research through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, and completed Senior or Honors thesis through our laboratory.
Applications are welcomed from students enrolled across the university, although prior coursework in earth or environmental sciences would be an asset.
To apply, send a cover letter and a two-page resume to Dr. Scott St. George at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is December 2, 2011.
