Summer Research in Molecular Ecology

Students interested in doing summer research in Molecular Ecology are invited to apply to join Jose Herrera’s research team for summer 2008. Participants will spend 10 weeks traveling across Mexico, the United States and Canada to examine the ecological role of Dark Septate Fungal Endophytes (DSEs) within a variety of sites.

Participants will receive a $3,500 stipend, three hours of undergraduate research credit, and room/board for the duration of the 10-week experience. To qualify for the program, students must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and able to obtain a passport prior to May 1, 2008.
