| Campus Location: Orlando (Main Campus)|
|Project Title: Herpetology, disease ecology and genetics |
|Project Description: |
The Savage lab is looking for up to two undergraduate students to assist with graduate student research projects this spring. We are particularly interested in recruiting undergraduates with an interest in at least two of the following: (1) amphibians and reptiles, (2) conducting field work, (3) conducting DNA analysis, and (4) working on projects that investigate the genetics of pathogen susceptibility in wildlife populations.
Undergraduates who demonstrate potential for additional research participation will be encouraged to continue working in our lab after the spring 2018 semester ends.
|Student Responsibilities: Preference will be given to undergraduates who have experience with field work, working with amphibians and reptiles, and/or performing basic DNA analysis. However, evidence of enthusiasm and reliability will also be considered! |
|Student Requirements: The specific duties will vary depending on the graduate student you work under, but will involve some or all of the following: assisting with field work sampling amphibian communities in Florida, performing molecular lab procedures such as DNA extractions, PCR, and qPCR, and performing other lab procedures such as slide staining and imaging or "dry" lab work involving bioinformatics |
|Type of Project: Team or Individual |
|Possibility of Payment: Program Stipend |
|Number of Students: 2 |
