Volunteer Opportunities

I am currently accepting volunteers interested in outside field work, laboratory assistants or the combination of both.

Field volunteer duties will include*:

  • soil core collection
  • litter depth measurement
  • microarthropod extraction/ preparation and collection.

Laboratory volunteer duties will include :

  • microarthropod sorting/identification
  • data management
  • soil pH anaylsis
  • DNA extraction for amplicon sequencing
  • PCR (including DNA extraction)
  • stable isotope prepping.

*Note field duties will require traveling to multiple forested areas in central Indiana.
