One need is for students to help us with fieldwork on these species. (This portion is led by Tracy Burkhard, firstname.lastname@example.org.) Student volunteers will gain experience in a variety of areas, including rodent trapping, handling, and husbandry; two-choice behavior tests; and acoustic playback and recording methods. Exceptional volunteers may be offered the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica in Summer 2015. We also have openings on a second, lab-based project working on decision-making about song and body condition in the singing mice (Erin Giglio, email@example.com). This project includes both behavioral and neuroanatomical work in the lab.
For field studies, we are also looking for students who are comfortable in and enjoy the outdoors, including work in hot and often buggy environments is required.

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.
