The laboratory of Dr. Lingling Chen, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, has undergraduate research positions open!
We are searching for reliable, intelligent students who are genuinely interested in scientific research. Students must have good note-taking skills, good communications skills, and be fast learners.
We are seeking to fill five independent student research positions from May 14 to July 30, 2020, starting in Costa Rica and ending in Panama. Participants will conduct research projects focused onthe broad theme of evaluating the extent to which differing economic and participatory incentivesand agricultural practices influence tropical forest conservation outcomes. Potential methods include censusing primate populations, quantifying differences in primate behavior, measuring primate fecal hormone levels with immunoassays, conducting interviews and surveys of local landowners,
government officials, and other stakeholders, measuring water and air quality, and quantifying forest characteristics using GIS and field methods. However, it is expected that each project will be designed by the student participant.
For Academic Year 08/11/2019 – 05/09/2020

It is anticipated that there will be up to ten positions available for the academic year 2019-20 pilot program.
