Volunteer Positions

Are you looking for more research experience? Do you want to get more involved with field and lab work? Love being on the water? 
The Aquatic Ecology Laboratory (AEL) has a number of graduate students looking for some extra hands this summer with field work and sample processing. These opportunities are perfect for those interested in gaining more field/lab experience, or who just want an excuse to get outside. 
If you are interested in being a volunteer for our lab, please send your name and email to me, Kim Winslow (winslow.52@osu.ed; AEL laboratory manager). I will add it to our "AEL Volunteer Listserv," which is how we communicate out a volunteer opportunity.

Work Study

We are looking for qualified students to fill work-study positions at the Aquatic Ecology Laboratory. Specific tasks for our Work-Study students include field sampling, in-lab sample processing, and data entry. We strive to ensure that Work-Study students also will have opportunities to participate in lab and field research associated with other ongoing projects. Aquatic Ecology Laboratory graduate students and faculty are committed to educating Work-Study students in the fine art of scientific research in a cooperative and supportive work environment. We are looking for creative, hard-working students.
