Biology laboratory that studies South American electric fish is seeking one or two part-time (5-10 hours/week, possibly more in the summer) student helpers starting immediately or in the fall semester. 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.). Some work over holiday breaks is expected. There may also be opportunities in the long term for interested students to become involved in research projects in the lab.
