Jen Casselle and Michelle Ferraro: Marine Invertebrate Recruitment Lab

[Biology-U-L] PISCO LAB Opportunities Biology Undergraduate List biology-u-l at lifesci.ucsb.edu Thu Aug 22 11:23:10 PDT 2013 Previous message: [Biology-U-L] CCBER Vertebrate Collections Internship Next message: [Biology-U-L] Fwd: Medical Assistants Messages sorted by: [ date ] [ thread ] [ subject ] [ author ] *Marine Science Volunteer Opportunities in the PISCO Lab!* Are you looking for an interesting place to gain valuable lab and field experience in a progressive environment? The Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans Lab is in need of patient, motivated, committed, independently minded undergrads to conduct ongoing marine intertidal and subtidal monitoring and research projects. These projects are basically focused on understanding how individuals, communities, and whole ecosystems interact and are affected by regional near-ocean processes and climate change. PISCO is a science consortium based out of four universities, and comprised of the very best principle investigators, science coordinators, analysts, post-docs, and graduate students collaborating across many disciplines and a latitudinal gradient stretching from Baja to the Pacific Northwest. Immediate work that needs to be done in the lab includes a host of projects related to the sorting of recruitment samples that are worked up using dissecting stereomicroscopes. Students who work in the lab will also have the opportunity to do field work from Spring to Fall. Field work consists of full day trips (6am – 5pm) out to the Channel Islands aboard University and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (NOAA) research vessels. Collections are all done via free diving, so AAUS SCUBA diving certification is not required but strong swimming skills and free diving experience are desired. Requirements: I prefer 2^nd and 3^rd years with some lab experience, and BIO/AquBIO/ENVS/EEMB majors. Be prepared to commit to *six to eight hours a week for at least two quarters*. If you feel like you are a particularly detail oriented and motivated 1^st year don’t hesitate to apply. Here is what I need and in the following order: 1.Name 2.Major 3.GPA 4.Class Standing (1^st /2^nd /3^rd /4^th) 5.Resume/C.V.(can be covered in by #6) 6.Tell me a little about yourself and why PISCO Lab is a good fit.

Sorry this blog turned out so messy! The website mixed up the neat little list I had.
