The Morton Arboretum is recruiting applicants for 2018 summer undergraduate fellowships, which runs for 10 weeks and covers housing and a generous stipend. Each fellow works closely under one scientist. Our scientists cover a broad range of topics: basic tree biology, forest ecology, arboriculture, biomechanics, root biology, soil science, population biology, genetics, phylogenetics, systematics, conservation biology, and restoration ecology. The program endeavors to promote critical thinking, self-confidence, and perseverance, while helping prepare students for graduate studies and professional careers in science-related fields.
The Hoban lab is specifically seeking a student with some experience in population genetics and/or computational biology. Please see the attached flyer . Applicants should ideally state their preferred scientist mentor in their cover letter, and explain why, to increase their chance of success.
