How to get involved..
The PaleoEcology laboratory is a great place to learn a variety
of research skills. We train students in microscopy, data gathering
and analysis, and statistics. In particular students learn to identify
fossil charcoal, diatoms, and pollen recovered from sediment cores
from ancient lakes in tropical America. We have a strong track
record of getting students published and in involving undergraduates
in our Andean and Amazonian field expeditions.
You can either come to work with us as a volunteer or if you
qualify as a Federal work-study position. Contact Dr. Mark Bush
[email@example.com] to set up an interview.
Fluent Spanish or Portuguese speakers are highly desirable. For
overseas students, a TOEFL score of >250 (computer-based test)
is desirable and >215 is required. Currently we are not recruiting
grad students and the next opening will probably be Fall 2011.
