Previous research topics draw on a variety of scientific disciplines, such as atmospheric sciences, biology, ecology, hydrology, and others. Example projects include carbon and mercury cycling from forests to lakes, atmospheric cycling, the effects of invasive species on dragonflies, climate change effects on Pitcher’s thistle in Lake Michigan Dunes, aquatic and forest floor food webs, and others.
The program, which is pending funding from the National Science Foundation, is nationally-competitive and open to students from any college or university. Underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.
