NEW Parasite Ecology Internship
SML is pleased to announce a new summer internship mentored by Dr. April Blakeslee (East Carolina University). Dr. Blakeslee has conducted and published research based on work at SML, beginning with her Ph.D. studies at UNH under Dr. Jeb Byers. The Parasite Ecology Internship will investigate parasite diversity in multi-host parasite systems on Appledore Island. Interns will collect parasite diversity data from invertebrate hosts, assist with experiments that induce infection in hosts, and then explore host behavior and physiology across an infection gradient. The experiments aim to determine whether parasitism influences competitive interactions in co-occurring crab species, such as the invasive European green crab and native Cancer crabs.
Internship dates: May 29 – August 8, 2017 (10 weeks on Appledore Island)
Application deadline: March 15, 2017
