Motivated student workers are needed to assist graduate students with fieldwork and laboratory work in Dr. Douda Bensasson’s lab (https://bensassonlab.wordpress.com/) for a National Science Foundation funded research on climate adaptation in eukaryotes (https://tinyurl.com/bensassonNSF). Major responsibilities include preparing field supplies, collecting bark samples at field sites in the Eastern US, making enrichment media, and culturing wild yeast on media. If the student worker shows a strong commitment and willingness to assist with research, then you can assist with extracting DNA for species identification and for whole-genome sequencing.
Ideal candidates will have respect for others in the workplace environment, commit more than one semester, be willing to work under fieldwork conditions that are hot and humid and show a commitment towards producing quality data.
