Undergruate student interns
Thorne labrmboynton@ucdavis.edu
Environmental Science & Policy
2- 3 undergraduate student internships are available in Dr. Thorne’s lab in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy. The work is to help document all the records in the State of California’s collection of stored seeds. These seeds are used in reforestation efforts. Interns will be involved with data entry, and will interact with professional foresters located in Davis who are developing approaches to reforestation efforts that take into account a changing climate, with the hope of having more resilient forests in California. There is a potential for summer fieldwork associated with the project. We are looking for people with good attention to detail!

Captive endangered rodent volunteer
Janet Foley jefoley@ucdavis.edu
Veterinary Medicine and Epidemiology
As part of a small mammal conservation project run by the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife and multiple collaborators, 20 endangered Amargosa voles were removed from shrinking habitat in July 2014 and moved to UC Davis to create a captive breeding colony. Our voles do very well in captivity and we maintain ~40 animals at a time. The captive population serves as an insurance colony in case a catastrophic environmental event occurs in their natural habitat, as a source of new animals for supplementing the natural population, and for research to better understand the species. To maintain the colony, We have a team of undergrad students that provide daily care to the animals (spot-cleaning cages, giving fresh food and water, making sure all animals are alert and healthy).Scheduling is very flexible. Each volunteer assists with 2-3 vole care shifts per week. Students sign up for any days/times that work for them. Volunteers will have the opportunity to assist with physical health exams, and learn wild rodent handling techniques.
Terrestrial, Vertebrate, Mammal
Daily care to the animalsTwo quarters
Each volunteer assists with 2-3 vole care shifts per week and each shift usually takes about 1-2 hours, so you would be committing ~5 hours of time per week.
The facilities are located on Old Davis Road, 15 minutes from main campus by bicycle
VolunteerNo previous experience is required
Email your CV or resume and a brief statement of interest (including you expectations for the position) to Dr. Janet Foley
