Undergraduate summer research internship in parasite ecology 

I think this is probably for US citizens or permanent residents you will need to check. 

Are you interested in ecology?  Want to get involved in scientific research?  Ever wondered about parasites? 
Apply to be an undergraduate research intern in parasite ecology!  The Wood Lab at the University of Washington is hiring four undergraduates for a 10-week Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) internship to take place between June and August of 2024.  Interns will conduct scientific research as part of a large team working at the Tulane University Biodiversity Research Institute near New Orleans, LA.  Learn about aquatic ecosystems of the US Gulf South region, conduct an independent research project under the supervision of multiple research mentors, collaborate with an international group of senior parasite ecologists and ichthyologists, and more! 
All travel is covered, as are room and board for the summer, and interns will each receive a stipend of $7,000.  You’ll also be supported to attend a scientific conference, where each intern will present results from their independent research project after the internship concludes. 
Note that no previous research experience is required.   

We are hiring on the basis of potential, not necessarily experience.  We are especially interested in students who have had to overcome obstacles in pursuit of their professional goals.  We encourage applications from individuals who are members of groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences, including students who are persons of color, female, first-generation college students, veterans, LGBTQIA, and students with disabilities.  We welcome applicants of any race, color, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, or veteran status.
