Dear undergrads,

Every summer, a hardy crew of SEFS student interns heads down to Pack Forest for two months of hands-on field training in sustainable forest management.

These students will develop forest mensuration skills, practice species identification, participate in research programs, and participate in sustainable forest management. Also, for the first time we are looking for up to five ONRC interns to support forest and riparian research on remote watersheds in the Olympic Experimental State Forest.

All internships run throughout the summer quarter, from June 19 to August 18. Four ESRM credits are available, and all students receive a $200 weekly stipend along with free housing.

To apply, send your resume and cover letter—by Sunday, April 9—describing how the internship will fit into your program to Professor Greg Ettl at ettl@uw.edu.

Field Ecology Internships 2017 (HilleRisLambers lab) at Mt. Rainier and North Cascades National Park

Mt. Rainier & North Cascades Field Internship Opportunities (2017)

HilleRisLambers Lab, University of Washington (Seattle)

The HilleRisLambers lab at University of Washington is looking for 5-6 undergraduate research assistants to help us conduct research at Mt. Rainier and North Cascades National Park this summer (2017). We study how rising temperatures and declining snow accumulation (i.e. climate change) will affect the forests and wildflower meadows of Washington, and are looking for enthusiastic and hard-working interns to assist us with 3 projects:

1) How will population dynamics be altered by climate change? To address this question, we have been collecting demographic data (since 1978) for tree populations in 18 stands within Mt. Rainier National Park.

2) What is the relationship between climate and wildflower phenology? We have established a citizen science program (MeadoWatch) which engages citizen scientists in collecting wildflower phenology data.

3) How will climate change influence communities? In collaboration with Dr. Amy Angert (UBC), we are resurveying communities at locations first surveyed in the late 70’s / early 80’s, and additionally establishing seed addition experiments in and around Mt. Rainier and North Cascades National Park.
