The Macrosystems Ecology Laboratory at the University of California at Berkeley is seeking an undergraduate student to carry out independent research in summer 2021 as part of an ecology project supported by the National Science Foundation. This Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) will support one student as part of a broader team.
The nature of the REU program will depend on the COVID-19 pandemic. If international travel is feasible and ethical, the project will be based in Ghana and will focus on tropical forests from the coast to the interior. If international travel is not possible, the project will be based at the University of California Botanical Garden in Berkeley, California. If neither is possible, the project will be offered as a remote internship instead and will focus on analyzing already-collected datasets.
