Student Opportunities

He is accepting undergraduate students who are willing and able to work many independent hours, apply themselves toward the tedious labor of insect retrieval and varying aspects of field work. In working with Dr. Campbell students can expect to develop important strengths in research techniques including enhancing one’s microscopy techniques and extending one’s organismal vocabulary. This research experience will offer the student independent study course credit and, potentially, funding (wages) if the research is during the summer research season.
