Internship opportunities are available in the Freshwater Ecology and Conservation Lab for Winter 2013! Interns will be sponsored by Dr. Julian Olden and will assist a master’s student with a study examining the impacts of urban development and invasive species on lake food webs. Interns will learn techniques of stable isotope analysis and the ecology and identification of aquatic insects. There may also be opportunities for long-term involvement with the study and to sample lakes during the summer.
I took advantage of Thomas’ list to spread the word of 3 graduate position at Cornell University Department of Natural Resources and the Cornell Biological Field Station working with zooplankton-phytoplankton interactions in the deep chlorophyll layer of Lake Ontario, comparative mysid ecology across the Great Lakes, and rehabilitation of endangered native coregonid in Lake Ontario. The two more limnological positions comes supported for 5 years and are most suitable for doctoral students, the coregonid project is supported for 2 years (MSc).
The National Park Service and the UW College of the Environment are pleased to announce the 2013 George Melendez Wright Climate Change Youth Initiative.
This program provides opportunities for young people to work on diverse issues related to climate change and its effects in national parks. The opportunities take two forms – competitive fellowships awarded to advanced graduate students (Masters and Doctorate levels) to support their independent research, and paid internships in which undergraduate or beginning graduate students work for approximately 12 weeks on projects in research, interpretation, park operations, policy development, or other fields.
Please join the Alaska Salmon Program for our 2012 Science Symposium
Friday, November 30, 2012
1:30 ~ 5:30 pm
Fishery Sciences Building (FSH) – 1122 NE Boat St.
Room 102 (auditorium)
This annual symposium showcases the research of the UW School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences’ Alaska Salmon Program undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and visiting scientists. Our program focuses on all aspects of the ecology of Pacific salmon in the North Pacific, Bering Sea, and watersheds of Southwest Alaska.
Potential funding opportunity for talented undergraduates:
Financial Support for Undergraduate Studies in Environmental Sciences is
available from the National Center for Environmental Research, a unit of the
EPA Office of Research and Development, which is seeking applications for
its Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) Fellowships For Undergraduate
Environmental Study. This fellowship program forms part of efforts to ensure
that the United States meets its current and projected human resource needs
in the environmental science, engineering, and policy fields.
