Santa Barbara LTER REU

A full time, three month REU internship is available as soon as May 2017.

Successful applicants will assist the Santa Barbara Coastal Long Term Ecological Research (SBC LTER) project in its investigations of factors (environmental, physiological) influencing the availability and utilization of various dissolved nitrogen species by macroalgae (and phytoplankton) in giant kelp forests off the coast of Santa Barbara, California. The project is an excellent opportunity to apply concepts of general chemistry and biology to answer fundamental questions about the functioning of important, sensitive coastal ecosystems.

Please send a resume, a statement of interest, and the names and contact information of two references to Jason Smith
