Project Description

Two Research Assistant positions are open for Fall 2018. The project needs students with excellent communication skills and attention to detail. Duties include curating ant specimens, assisting with the School of Ants (schoolofants.org) citizen science project, and may also include fieldwork as part of a study evaluating the impacts of invasive ants on native biodiversity in conservation planning. Experience with insect curation is advantageous, but not required! MUST BE AVAILABLE 10-12 hrs/week. Position can be for research credit or payment, depending on qualifications. The Lucky lab is a motivated and interactive lab group investigating fundamental questions about ant biodiversity and evolution, with a focus on both native and invasive ant species. If you are interested in wildlife, conservation, or just want to gain research experience in biology, you may be a perfect fit. To apply send your resume with two references to Rachel Atchison (ratchison@ufl.edu). Include your contact information and a few sentences describing your interest in this position.
