Each summer, Tyson runs an active undergraduate research program in ecology, evolutionary biology, and related environmental sciences. Summer undergraduate researchers at Tyson are paid for their work through funding from NSF grants, HHMI funds, or internal fellowships and internships. Although we prioritize providing research opportunities for Washington University students, outstanding students from other universities are occasionally hired for summer research at Tyson.
The 2014 field season for our undergraduate research program will begin May 12, 2014 and run for 11 weeks. The application period for the research program has now drawn to a close. Please direct program-related questions to Eleanor Pardini or Kim Medley.
