Career Administrator

Summer Field Technicians Needed! If you are looking to work outside this summer, then consider this amazing summer internship opportunity. Work in Wisconsin this summer with a team of other curious field technicians to study the current state and future implications of micro-biota in Northern American Wetlands! Contact Cal Buelo (cdb8g@virginia.edu) with you resume and any questions you may have!

 

WHO: Motivated, independent undergraduates interested in:

- gaining research experience in the field and lab

- working outdoors

- learning new analytical techniques

WHAT: Assist a team of researchers in northern Wisconsin this summer that are performing and monitoring a whole-lake ecosystem manipulation.

WHERE: The research station, UNDERC, is a remote field station in northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

WHEN: Mid-May to mid-August. Travel expenses to and from the field station will be covered as well as housing for the duration of the appointment. The student will also receive a competitive hourly wage.

WHY: The goal of the project is to compare early warning indicators (EWI) calculated from time series and spatial data to detect an impending algal bloom. If EWI can be successfully identified in a timely manner, it would provide ecosystem managers with a tool to identify potential catastrophic changes and manage appropriately to avoid the unwanted change.
