Description
I am still looking for several students to help with our various studies in functional morphology ranging from studies of animal behavior, to dissection based comparative anatomy, analyses of skulls and teeth and also fossils. I also study STEM education in Informal Science Learning Sites (e.g., museums and zoos). We do this in research on campus as well as in collections all over the world - including possible trips soon to study fossils in Cape Town, South Africa and the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles and a significant amount of work in Paris France for the next several years. Students will learn skills appropriate for those intending to go onto careers in academia, veterinary and human medicine as well as STEM education and inquiry. Students can earn credit. Students who excel at this work can earn paid opportunities, and, most importantly, authorship on peer reviewed publications and travel experience around the globe. We prefer to take Sophomores and Juniors into the lab, but are happy to take enthusiastic and committed Freshmen. Since our goal is to keep research students in the lab for more than a year (one year of training and then the following years of execution), we only rarely take Seniors.
