Research assistant position available with UD scientist Dr. Rodrigo Vargas
Are you an AAP student with an interest in ecology, biology, statistics, computer/information science, engineering, or another related field? If so, you have a very rare opportunity to work on an National Science Foundation-funded project as an undergraduate and gain invaluable research experience!
Dr. Rodrigo Vargas, associate professor in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), is currently seeking an AAP student for an undergraduate research assistant position in Newark. The position is open to currently enrolled AAP students or AAP grads who have transitioned to Newark.
Dr. Vargas's research focuses on carbon-exchange processes in tidal coastal wetlands. He is the recent recipient of a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Award, which has allowed him to establish an outdoor laboratory at the St. Jones Reserve near Dover. The St. Jones Reserve is a component of the Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve (DNERR) and part of the National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERR).
Research assistant positions are paid, and salary will be based on experience. The position requires a minimum time commitment of 3–4 hours per week for the duration of the semester; however, there is an opportunity to continue beyond the Fall 2018 semester.
