summer undergraduate internship available in my lab - deadline 23rd Jan

Applications due 23rd January.

I have a paid undergraduate intern position avaliable in my lab this summer - on a project using automated behavioral phenotyping to explore how environment influences the behavior of aquatic invertebrates. Using state-of-the-art experimental methods, the student will conduct laboratory experiments to test how temperature, light, turbidity, micro plastics, and/or pH influence the movement of aquatic invertebrates inhabiting wetlands, many of which play important roles in ecosystems. 

The internship starts with a week-long short course at NGRREC’s field station in East Alton, IL. At the end of the summer, students will present their work in a professional, two-day Intern Symposium attended by their peers, research advisors, and other professionals. 

To apply students will need to submit a general application here,  and will need to list my project as their preferred option (PROJECT #4 Using automated behavioral phenotyping to explore how environmental drivers influence the behavior of aquatic invertebrates, with implications for wetland conservation
