Are you an undergraduate student interested in ecophys research? Check out the USRA posting for our grey squirrel project.
This research position will require intensive outdoor field research in urban and rural environments to trap and monitor gray squirrels, sample collection, detailed field observations, and sample analysis in the laboratory. Applicants should enjoy working outside, be prepared to work early mornings, long days and some weekends, and have an intense interest in both stress and wildlife research and feel comfortable working as part of a team led by a graduate student. This position has the opportunity to be extended into a 4th year research thesis in the Newman Lab. Applicants selected for an interview will be notified mid-February and should come prepared with an idea for a research question they would be interested in pursuing for a thesis. Finally, a vehicle, and valid driver’s license, is an asset.
