Research Internships - Evolutionary Biology in Trinidad
Research interns are needed to assist in a multi-disciplinary, multi-investigator, experimental study of the interactions between ecology and evolution in Trinidad, West Indies. The research is led by Professor David Reznick at the University of California, Riverside in collaboration with Joseph Travis (Florida State), Tim Coulson (Oxford), Paul Bentzen (Dalhousie U.), and Ron Bassar (Williams). We seek to integrate multiple biological fields for the study of these interactions in experimental populations of guppies in Trinidad. Duties include assisting in monthly censuses of guppy populations in montane streams. The monthly censuses include long hours in the field and laboratory. There will also be 12 days off between each census when interns can pursue an independent project.

Interns will be required to spend a minimum of 3-months in Trinidad, with possibility of extension. There are potential start dates in July 2019 and every month thereafter until early 2019. We will cover all travel and living expenses and provide housing.
