Do field ecology research at Kellogg Biological Station in Michigan!

The Wetzel Lab at Michigan State University is looking for a Williams student to join the Lab’s
summer field research program. We study how the ecology of plants and insects responds to
variability in the biotic and abiotic environment. One of our main projects involves studying the
consequences of extreme high temperatures (heat waves) for milkweeds, monarch caterpillars,
and their predators. Opportunity exists for the student to pursue an independent project. Housing
will be provided at our field research site at the Kellogg Biological Station (KBS, in Hickory Corners, MI. KBS is an exciting place to do ecological
research because of the large and dynamic community of researchers working there (> 20 labs
from multiple universities, including professors, graduate students, and dozens of undergraduates
from around the world). The student will receive a weekly stipend from the Williams Center for
Environmental Studies or from the Wetzel Lab. Please see for information
about our research. Please email me (Will Wetzel, [email protected]) if you’re interested.
Dates are flexible but ideally mid June-August.
