I have periodic openings for undergraduates to work with me on most of my ongoing projects. I will teach you everything you need to know and you will gain firsthand knowledge about (i) experimental design and setup, (ii) field studies, and (iii) experimental manipulations conducted in the lab. Opportunities range from getting a job in the lab as a work-study student to actually conducting your own research to publish as a senior thesis. CU has many opportunities for undergraduates to get PAYED for doing their own research. I have been a mentor for BURST and am happy to also work closely with UROP students. There are also numerous opportunities to get credit for work done in the lab as Independent Research so please contact me. If you would like a broad introduction to field studies with conservation ecology and you have been wanting to study abroad, you may want to consider signing up for my suite of three courses taught in Zambia through Wildlands Studies. I am happy to answer all questions through my email (john.mischler@gmail.com).
