|3/30/2016 10:38:23||Fungal-Algal Symbioses and Genetics||The Hom lab open to hard-working, driven, mature, undergraduate lab assistants to work closely members of our lab. Responsibilities will include aseptic media and experiment preparation, culture maintenance, and the use of basic molecular techniques. Highly motivated students or ones with previous lab experience have the potential to run and maintain experiments if desired.||Spring 2016 and beyond||403 Shoemaker Hall||Doctoral-level graduate student||Volunteer (experience is its own reward!), Biology elective credit (BISC 491)||This is an excellent opportunity to gain highly desired laboratory skills for a career in the biotechnology or biomedical sector. No previous lab experience is required and undergraduates of any year are encouraged to apply. Students with a strong interest in microbiology, genetics, or systems biology are preferred. If interested, please include a brief description of yourself, why you are interested in the position, and your anticipated work availability. All starting lab members should be expected to undergo a defined no-strings-attached probational period to efficiently ensure we are mutually a good match.||flexible time schedule but at least 8 hrs/week||1||Erik Homemail@example.com|
|8/27/2015 10:51:24||Where do carnivorous plants live?||In helping a Ph.D. student with his research on understanding why carnivorous plants tend not to occur in nutrient-rich wetlands, the student will collect carnivorous and non-carnivorous plants from nutrient-poor and nutrient-rich wetlands and examine root characteristics.||mid-may thru December 2016||Mississippi Gulf Coast and Brewer's lab on campus.||Doctoral-level graduate student||Volunteer (experience is its own reward!)||The student must not be afraid of field work (heat, bugs, armed plants, getting muddy) and must be able to travel to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a weekend field trip. Transportation will be provided. Familiarity with measuring density or porosity of materials using a pycnometer is desirable, but not essential.||8 hrs a day for the 3 day weekend field trip plus two hours a week in the lab for 4 weeks for measuring root porosity.||1||Stephen Brewerfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|4/13/2016 13:58:23||"Long-term botanical studies in north Mississippi"||Students will assist with data-mining over the last 20 years to determine what changes have occurred in long-term monitoring plots and ponds at the University of Mississippi Field Station. Studies will examine changes in species richness, biomass, and phenology un plots. Ponds will be characterized, and changes noted over the last decade.||8/20/2016-5/20/2017||Shoemaker Hall and UM Field Station||Professor or post-doctoral researcher||Biology elective credit (BISC 491)||BISC 160 & 162, and either Botany or Plant Diversity||2nrs/week/BISC 491 credit||3||Dr. Marjorie M.

|8/23/2016 11:24:27||Snake Morphology||Research activities: Quality score and assign landmarks to digital images of snakes for use in geometric morphometric analysis. Students will also collect data on other meristic and and qualitative characters recorded in the images. |
Location: Shoemaker Hall but students will also have opportunity to screen images from their personal computers as well.
