Syracuse University REU POSITION SUMMER 2020 – ECOLOGY/PLANT BIOLOGY in Syracuse, New York
Undergraduate Summer Research Position: Syracuse University, late May - August 2020 (start/end dates flexible). The lab of Jason Fridley at Syracuse University is seeking a motivated undergraduate student interested in gaining research experience in plant ecology as part of a research team investigating mechanisms of plant invasions in forests and fields of the Northeast U.S. The research is part of a study that examines potential changes in leaf physiology when plants are introduced to North America from home ranges in France and Japan. The undergraduate project will be based in Syracuse and will examine plant metabolism and nutrient dynamics in both the lab and field locations around NY State. For students enrolled at Syracuse University or SUNY-ESF, there is an opportunity to continue work on the project as an independent study (for credit) over the Fall 2020 semester and beyond, although students are encouraged to apply regardless of home institution.
