Research Opportunities for Undergraduates

We provide excellent opportunties for undergraduate research and work study in our lab. Highly motivated students with a potential interest in continuing in science will be encouraged to develop an independent research project based on either molecular or morphological data collection and analysis. We can also accomodate students that are primarily interested in learning lab techniques such as PCR and DNA sequencing. Recent undergraduate researchers have participated in major collecting expeditions to Sulawesi, Indonesia where they conducted fieldwork in support of their own research projects.
