Biology laboratory that studies South American electric fish is seeking a part-time (10-15 hours/week, possibly more in the summer) student helper. 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.). There may also be opportunities for interested students to become involved in research projects in the lab.
