Contact DetailsKim Hammond
In fall 2014, we are especially interested in a volunteer to work with experiments on live bumble bee colonies.
Preference for students with interests in genetics, microbiology, evolutionary biology, or insects.
Students will need to devote at least 10 hours per week, and should plan to commit for at least 2 semesters. There is a possibility of working more hours in the summer.
RIght now we have no more paid positions for fall 2014, but students can volunteer or work for course credits.
Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a project of interest to you, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members or project contacts about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
Once you have attended an Office of Undergraduate Research info session or spoken to an advisor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to get in touch with the project leader and express your interest in getting involved.
