The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center at the University of Alaska Southeast, through support from the Alaska Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, is currently seeking qualified undergraduate students for a research fellows program which will examine the potential changes caused by glacial recession in Southeast Alaska, according to a notice from the ACRC this week.
Research fellows will work with a mentor to participate in “icefield to estuary” research which focuses on future changes in Southeast Alaska’s environment and the associated socio-economic consequences for communities like Juneau. A project summary can be reviewed here: http://www.alaska.edu/epscor/focus/biology.
For more information, contact ACRC/EPSCoR outreach coordinator Sarai Timothy firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24.
