|9/16/2014 15:48:40||Aquatic ecology||Students will assist with experimental studies looking at various aspects of aquatic ecology. Work will be split between field and laboratory components. Projects that the applicant will assist in include amphibian habitat selection, development, and behavior, salamander development, aquatic insect habitat selection, biodiversity surveys of ponds, and others. Duties include collecting field data, maintaining the study sites and equipment, and conducting lab work.||Fall 2014 with possible extension through summer 2015||All work will at the University of Mississippi Field Station (20 minute, 11 mile drive from campus)||Doctoral-level graduate student||Volunteer (experience is its own reward!), Work study (if eligible, hourly wage thru Financial Aid office), Student worker (hourly wage)||Assistants will be expected to have their own transportation to and from the field station. They should be able to withstand long hours in challenging field conditions: hot and humid environment, rain, and possibly at night (during spring and early summer). Assistants should be able to work independently with guidance from graduate students and occasionally lift heavy objects.||10-15 hours per week during academic year, more in summer.||3||William Resetaritsemail@example.com|
|5/5/2015 17:31:14||Phosphorus uptake by Wetland Plants||Students will assist with planting, and collection of plant specimens, Along with dosing of plant species with Phosphorous. |
This project is simple, and a great way to get background knowledge on experimental setup and information about wetlands.
|May-July 2015||University Field Station||Masters-level graduate student||Volunteer (experience is its own reward!)||Must be able to lift 50 lbs, and be able to withstand Summer heat. Work will be done outside, but mostly in the mornings or evenings and only for short periods of time.||Students may join this project at anytime.|

June 1 8am- noon
June 30th 8am-noon
July 1st: 8am-noon
July 31st 8am-noon

|6/24/2015 12:04:41||Salamander Road Ecology||Students will help with field sampling. Techniques will include transect surveys, trapping, and electroshocking. Students will learn to take basic environmental measurements with handheld instruments and basic GPS skills. Lab work includes filtration and environmental DNA sequencing prep.||6/22/15 - 8/14/15||Holly Springs National Forest and Shoemaker Hall||Masters-level graduate student||Volunteer (experience is its own reward!)||Able to lift 50lbs, hike moderately challenging terrain, and volunteer nights for field sampling. If you are not available for night sampling, lab work can be arranged for day hours.||Two, 8 hours nights per week.||3||Calebfirstname.lastname@example.org or 205-495-6483|
|6/26/2015 11:09:56||Snake Morphology||Student will 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. ||July-August 2015||Shoemaker Hall w/opportunity to work off campus||Doctoral-level graduate student||Volunteer (experience is its own reward!)||Volunteer (experience is it's own reward) but there is potential for work study or independent study credit in the fall semester. Student volunteer will also have opportunity to work on other projects in the lab and gain experience in molecular techniques such as DNA extraction. Promising individuals will be given the opportunity to take the lead on their own project using reptile or amphibian data collected by the PI.||10 hours per week minimum||1||Timothy Colstonemail@example.com |
