Marine Science Volunteer Opportunities in the PISCO Lab!

>  
>
> Are you looking for an interesting place to gain valuable lab and 
> field experience in a progressive environment?  The Partnership for 
> Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans Lab is in need of patient, 
> motivated, committed, independently minded undergrads to conduct 
> ongoing marine intertidal and subtidal monitoring and research 
> projects. These projects are basically focused on understanding how 
> individuals, communities, and whole ecosystems interact and are 
> affected by regional near-ocean processes and climate change.  PISCO 
> is a science consortium based out of four universities, and comprised 
> of the very best principle investigators, science coordinators, 
> analysts, post-docs, and graduate students collaborating across many 
> disciplines and a latitudinal gradient stretching from Baja to the 
> Pacific Northwest.

>
> Immediate work that needs to be done in the lab includes a host of 
> projects related to the sorting of recruitment samples that are worked 
> up using dissecting stereomicroscopes.  The PISCO Lab also supplies 
> support and people from within the lab to help various graduate 
> students and post-docs with their work.  These projects include 
> amongst other things: detrital food webs, urchin gonad analysis, 
> predator prey relationships, and surfgrass research.  Field work is 
> contingent on individual projects but our core intertidal field work 
> occurs monthly and tri-monthly from Coal Oil Point to Piedras Blancas 
> Light on the Central Coast.

> I prefer 2^nd  and 3^rd  years with some lab experience, and 
> BIO/AquBIO/ENVS/EEMB majors. Be prepared to commit to six to eight 
> hours a week for more than one quarter.  If you feel like you are a 
> particularly detail oriented and motivated 1^st  year don’t hesitate 
> to apply.

> 4.     Class Standing (1^st /2^nd /3^rd /4^th  )
>
> 5.     Resume/C.V.(can be covered in by #6)
