The Marylee Everett Internship

New England Wild Flower Society, the oldest native plant conservation organization in the United States, is a recognized leader in regional plant conservation. Two core initiatives–the New England Plant Conservation Program (NEPCoP) and the Plant Conservation Volunteer (PCV) program–engage professional and citizen volunteers in rare species monitoring, habitat management, invasive species monitoring and control, reintroduction and augmentation projects, and long-term conservation planning. These innovative and award-winning programs work closely with Natural Heritage offices and with conservation organizations in all six New England states.

The internship offers a range of learning opportunities in field actions that are integral to these programs, from coordinating volunteers and entering data to conducting botanical surveys and undertaking management projects. As part of the internship, the intern will have an education plan and be required to complete a project on a topic of his or her choice.

Description

The intern has the opportunity to learn about all aspects of the Society’s conservation programs while assisting staff retrieving data from the heritage programs, obtaining landowner permission for rare plant surveys, sending out volunteer assignments, and entering data. Additionally, the intern is involved in the planning and implementation of restoration and management activities, invasive species initiatives, general floristic surveys, and PCV field trips to botanically interesting locations throughout the region.

New Undergraduate Summer Research Opportunity! Evolution, Ecology, and Environment

Are you looking for a summer research opportunity in the broad fields of evolution, ecology, or environmental biology? There is a new REU program based in the Dept. of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology (OEB) at Harvard. The program is called Evolution, Ecology, and Environment (E3 REU) and they will be welcoming their first group of interns summer of 2019. They are particularly interested in identifying underrepresented minority or first generation students who are interested in exploring research opportunities in evolution and ecology that might not otherwise be available at their home institution.

What kinds of science research opportunities are available? Research will be based in faculty labs drawn from OEB as well as the Harvard University Center for the Environment, which includes faculty from a number of Harvard departments and schools, including the Dept. of Earth and Planetary Science and the Paulson School for Engineering and Applied Science. That means that research projects may cover anything from developmental genetics to comparative genomics to systematics to global ecology to physiology to biogeochemistry.

Does the program involve more than just lab-based research? Of course! There will be weekly meetings with students in the E3 REU program as well as other Harvard-based summer research programs that will help interns develop a wide range of professional skills to support their success in graduate school. In addition to these weekly meetings, students will attend the annual Leadership Alliance National Symposium (all travel/lodging/meals covered), and there will be regular social activities and field excursions. You can find out more about the program here and here.

Deadline: February 1, 2019

How to Apply: Students apply through the Leadership Alliance Summer Research-Early Identification program. Students interested in the Harvard E3 REU should select Harvard University, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences as at least one of their target programs in their application.
