Seeking field assistants

The UMD BATS Team, in Dr. Murrow's wildlife lab, is looking for undergraduate students to fill its spring and summer research team. Team members gather bat and habitat data in the field all day every Saturday of the Spring 2016 semester, or identify insects in the lab each week. Team members will receive training in February on how to deploy bat acoustic detectors, estimate tree height, DBH, tree canopy cover, use GPS and more. Weekend field work starts in March.  Priority will be given to students who can work spring and summer semesters. This is a great opportunity to gain wildlife field research experience!

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and unofficial transcripts to Shannon Pederson at Please indicate if you would like your research internship to count for internship credit hours.
