Field assistants needed

The UMD BATS Team, in Dr. Murrow's wildlife lab, is looking for undergraduate students to fill its fall research team. Team members gather bat and habitat data in the field all day (8-12 hours) Saturdays in September, October, and early November. Team members will receive training in September on how to deploy bat acoustic detectors, estimate tree height, DBH, tree canopy cover, use GPS and more. Weekend field work starts in early September. 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 by September 6. Please indicate if you would like your research internship to count for internship credit hours and if you are available to drive to research sites in VA, DC, MD, and DE. Gas money is reimbursed.
