The Gratton lab is currently seeking motivated and energetic undergraduates to assist with field work on a variety of projects for the 2017 field season on a part time basis.
Candidates should have interest in entomology, ecology, and agricultural research. Prior field experience is preferred, but not required. Field assistants would be involved on a number of projects ranging from Apple pollination, cranberry pollination and wild bee ecology, and various lab tasks. Because of the diversity of tasks, we are seeking part-time help, with hours ranging based on work availability. A minimum availability of 10 hours per week is preferred. There are a number of possible independent projects that could be developed from this work. Our lab really enjoys taking students on for the duration of their studies, and we have had great success with students developing their own projects in concurrence with our graduate students and post-docs.
- Must have a drivers license with clean record (to drive state vehicle)
