Opportunities for Students and Citizens
Independent Research/ Volunteers
The Aquatic Ecology laboratory and the Elm Fork Natural Heritage Museum welcome students or citizens that would like to get involved with our projects. For students there is the opportunity to arrange independent study research for academic credit. For citizens living in the area or students not needing graduate or undergraduate credit there are many volunteer opportunities.
Elm Fork Natural Heritage Museum
We currently have need of volunteers to:
- Maintain and catalog collections in the B.B. Harris Herbarium
- Maintain and catalog insect collections
- Develop lesson plans using museum resources for elementary and secondary school programs
In many cases experience is not necessary. We will provide training. Please contact Dr. James Kennedy at email@example.com or by phone 940-565-2981 to inquire about these opportunities.
There are often opportunities to work as laboratory assistants, many of these are paid positions . Normal duties include, but are not limited to:
- preparing various types of samples for analysis
- in the field activities
- sorting and identification of invertebrates.
Please contact Dr. James Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 940-565-2981 to inquire about these opportunities. Check this web site often because the need for volunteers and paid positions change when new projects begin or grants awarded.
