Plant and Microbial Ecology Summer 2016 Internships at the Holden Arboretum

This 12-week summer internship will provide you with an opportunity to work
with scientists from The Holden Arboretum studying the effects of
environmental change on plants and forests of Northeast Ohio. Internships
typically run from late May thru early August but timing is flexible. Duties
may include: assisting in soil and plant sampling, plant data collection, as
well as extracting, amplifying, and analyzing DNA from soils and roots.
Interns will be compensated with a stipend of $400/week and on-site housing
is available if needed for a nominal fee ($30 per week). Due to our rural
location, interns are responsible for their own transportation. Persons with
knowledge of or interest in ecology, microbiology, and plant biology are
encouraged to apply.

prior experience, and two references. Applicants should also indicate their
primary research interest. Holden research staff and a description of their
