Biology laboratory that studies South American electric fish is seeking student helpers starting in mid- to late-November. The fish studied in the lab are not dangerous and produce very weak electrical fields to navigate and to communicate. We study the mechanisms of generating and detecting electrical communication signals. Duties will include helping to maintain large, multi-tank aquarium systems and general lab maintenance (glassware washing, chemical inventories, maintaining laboratory equipment, etc.). Work over holiday breaks is expected.
