Cohen – Biology-Ecology, Behavior & Evolution
Options: Volunteer Basis, Potential for UROP Funding
The Warkentin Lab studies environmentally cued hatching in frogs both locally and in the neotropics. I am seeking a sophomore or junior who would like to begin volunteering this spring and apply for summer UROP funding for the summer. The work will be a combination of field work (collecting frog eggs from local ponds) and lab work (molecular, histology, immunohistochemistry). Students should have an interest in amphibian ecology, evolution, and behavior, good manual dexterity, and attention to detail.
