Urban Ecology Internship

Urban Ecology Internship

I am seeking a motivated undergraduate student to work with me ~ 10h / week , $10 /hour during the Fall 2019 semester on a project related to microbial ecology and stormwater green infrastructure. This internship opportunity would be mainly lab-based, processing soil and vegetation samples for chemical analyses as well as microbial DNA extractions. This work would include some fieldwork at our site located in Research Park, sampling vegetation tissue chemistry and collecting soil cores.  Students will learn skills related to microbial ecology and biogeochemistry, with the possibility of developing an independent research project during Spring 2020.

 

Any student with an interest in green infrastructure, soil ecology, or water chemistry is encouraged to apply. Some background in laboratory- based coursework is preferred  but not required.  Interested individuals should send a copy of their resume  with relevant courses listed, and contact information (email & phone number) of one reference to rose.smith@utah.edu.
