Summer 2015 REU Opportunity: Species interactions in a changing climate at Mount Rainier National Park, WALocation: Seattle, Washington
Agency: University of Washington
Due Date: March 20, 2017
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.
