The undergraduate student s will assist current lab members (including graduate and undergraduate students) with existing lab projects that include field experiments, large-scale lake surveys, and laboratory-based mechanistic studies and analytical analyses.

The ideal candidate will be honest, hard-working, enjoy teamwork, and be interested in pursuing a career in science. I am motivated to maintain a productive, diverse lab and encourage students from under-represented groups to consider joining us.

Starting dates and expected hours worked are flexible. Pay for this position is $8 per hour.
