Fall Opportunities 2017
Gene Specific DNA Repair
Seeking 1 student, freshman, sophomore or junior in the fall of 2017.
I am looking for students who would like to pursue careers in the biomedical field. This research focuses on DNA repair rates in cancerous and normal human cells. A broad spectrum of biomedical techniques will be used.
Preference for students with Biol 100 & Biol 115 as well as Chem 103 or demonstrate a strong grasp of biological and chemical concepts.
Minimum of one year
Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis of forest cover and climate data in Interior Alaska
Seeking 2 students, any year of study, willing to learn and work on GIS, climate and wildlife data.
This project provides opportunities for students to explore and work-up specific forestry and climate GIS data for birds and habitats in Interior Alaska.
Students will gain experience in learning geographic information systems (GIS, ArcGIS or QGIS), insights into landscape ecology, bird, habitat and climate management issues, and digital data skills for Alaska. Office space, hardware and software provided.
R skills would ideal, or at least a willingness to learn
None provided. Students would need to seek funding from URSA Project application or find another source if they require funding. Project coordinator would help with the process.
Plant Genetics and Hybridization
Associate Professor of Botany and Curator of the Herbarium (ALA), UA Museum
This study will expand our understanding of the role of glacial cycles in producing genetic and taxonomic diversity by untangling the complex network of divergences and hybridization events that have generated diversity in a Beringian polyploid complex. Learn state-of-the art
molecular sequencing techniques to better understand plant biodiversity in Alaska and visit some amazing field sites in the Aleutians.
317 Akasofu Building
Implementation of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver oriented to unmanned aircraft systems development. CFD codes are used to numerically solve the fluid the around wings and aircraft body to compute lifting, drag and momentum in dynamic flying conditions and control. Familiarity with C language and Python is preferred. Students from Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Physics are encourage to apply.
