Undergraduate Science Intern North Carolina 3/8/2018 +

Categorized Under:

Organization:US Forest Service’s Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory

Job Description:

We seek to hire an undergraduate science intern in forest hydrology and ecology for the summer of 2018. Work will be in the southern Appalachian mountains, at the US Forest Service’s Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory near Otto, NC, one of the longest-running, most productive and important forest hydrology laboratories in the world. If hired, you will work with scientists from the Coweeta Lab, the University of Georgia, and the University of Minnesota on how evergreen understory shrubs affect water, soil temperature and moisture, and forest productivity, with a mix of field, lab, and office activities. A stipend and on site housing is provided as part of the appointment.

The incumbent will be part of a team studying the ecology of Rhododendron and Kalmia taxa. These ericaceous shrubs are identified as potential bottlenecks to recruitment of overstory species, and competitors for water and nutrients for trees of all sizes. While widespread in the landscape, there is no organized set of soil moisture measurements across the full range of terrain conditions on which ericaceous shrubs are found. Duties include, but are not limited to: (1) installing and maintaining a variety of standard hydrologic and climatic instruments measuring soil moisture, soil temperature, sap flow, relative humidity, and radiation; (2) assisting with selecting and establishing new stations for data collection in watershed experiments; (3) using computer software to combine new and existing datasets; and (4) tabulating, statistically analyzing, and summarizing data. The student will analyze data and present results in a formal report and in an end-of-summer student symposium at Coweeta.

Qualified candidates will be university or college students, with a preference given to those that have coursework in forest ecology, plant biology, landscape ecology, and environmental science; experience performing fieldwork; and a working knowledge of MS Excel. Fieldwork will involve hiking over rugged terrain, carrying moderate loads (<30 lbs). Knowledge of plant identification of southeastern species as well as experience using advanced data analysis (MATLAB, R, SAS) and GIS software is a plus.

This is a full-time (40 hour/week) position for 10-weeks, with a flexible start data in May or June. We will provide a stipend of $600/week and free on-site housing. Interested applicants should send the following items to Dr. Chris Oishi at 1) a brief cover letter, stating your interest in this position, relevant experience, and career goals (maximum 1-page, single-spaced); 2) a resume or CV; 3) undergraduate transcripts (official or unofficial); 4) contact information for two references (faculty members or employers preferred). Application deadline is March 30, 2018 or until a suitable candidate is found.
