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. Students interested in applying for the 2014 summer program should contact mentors to discuss opportunities. Apply online by January 13, 2014. Please direct program-related questions to Eleanor Pardini or Kim Medley.
