Summer 2015 REU Opportunity: Species interactions in a changing climate at Mount Rainier National Park, WA

Location: Seattle, Washington
Agency: University of Washington
Due Date: March 20, 2017
GPA: 3.00
Stipend: 2,250.00
Description: An NSF Research Expe­ri­ence for Under­grad­u­ates sum­mer fel­low­ship is avail­able to study the impacts of cli­mate change on plant com­mu­ni­ties in the Pacific North­west. The under­grad­u­ate researcher will work in Dr. Hil­leRis­Lam­bers lab with field work con­ducted at Mt. Rainier National Park to develop and implement an independent project focusing on the role of indirect interactions between plants mediated by their shared pollinators. Broad research top­ics in the lab include the rela­tion­ship between plant per­for­mance and cli­mate, the deter­mi­nants of range lim­its, plant-pollinator inter­ac­tions as medi­ated by phe­nol­ogy, and the effects of cli­mate and soil con­di­tions on high ele­va­tion plants. The REU program will run from May 26th- August 21st. A stipend of $2250 will be provided, as well as travel, housing and food while in the field. When not in the field, the student would be based at University of Washington's Seattle campus. To be eligible, you must be a US Citizen or permanent resident currently working towards a Bachelor’s degree in a related field, graduating no sooner than Fall 2015.
