Undergraduate Research Opportunity Spring Quarter 2017

Hello SAFS Undergraduates:

Chris Grue is recruiting a select group of undergraduates from SAFS or SEFS to assist with the development of a functional predation test using Chinook salmon smolts and smallmouth bass to confirm the safety of a new herbicide for the control of Eurasian watermilfoil.  Students will assist with (contribute to)  the design of the test and validating the test using the facilities at the SAFS aquatic facility (hatchery).  Students will also have the opportunity to assist with the conduct of a 96-h toxicity test using the herbicide and Chinook smolts.  The project will run from the beginning to end of Spring Quarter.  Students selected to participate will be able to register for 3 undergraduate research credits through SAFS.  This project is not designed to be a Capstone Research Project but rather a Team effort.  Priority will be given to those undergraduates who have taken or are currently enrolled Fish and Wildlife Toxicology (FISH 455/ESRM 457) but others are encouraged to apply.  Please send a resume and brief statement as to why you should be a member of the Team to Lisa Crosson, lisa418@uw.edu.

We look forward to receiving your application.
