We welcome undergrad researchers who are prepared to make a commitment to our research program.
In a typical arrangement, you might be able to sign up for 3 hours of research credit (L490) and plan to commit no less than 10 hours per week for no fewer than 2 semesters. There are more limited opportunities for volunteer work.
Research for credit might consist of lab work, field work, data analysis, or writing. For students who choose to work with live animals, there are health and training tests to take. For the most highly committed, we hold a weekly lab meeting to which you would be invited. Students work most closely with a graduate student, post-doc, research associate, or faculty member.
Current projects include:
- Monitoring the campus for birds killed in window strikes (Sarah Wanamaker email@example.com).
- Focusing on environmental communication (Shanahan/Ketterson firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Tagging and banding the local migratory American robins (Alex Jahn email@example.com).
- Assessing prevalence of avian malaria (Katie Talbott; position currently filled).
- Physiological and neural mechanisms associated with timing of reproduction (Devraj Singh firstname.lastname@example.org).
