During summer 2013 two student research fellows will be responsible for developing case studies in environmental health topics. With significant independence, each student will engage in a combination of literature reviews, field work, data collection, database retrieval, and analysis, and develop materials suitable for educational case studies that integrate aspects of biology, chemistry and epidemiology.
Fellows have the option of continuing their research during the academic year as part of a capstone experience or independent study with potential to present their work at regional or national meetings. It is an excellent opportunity for students interested in the connections between environmental science and human health.
Positions are full-time for five weeks or part-time for 10 weeks with flexibility in scheduling hours determined upon hiring. Compensation includes a stipend and housing allowance.
