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
  • soil organic matter analysis
  • soil moisture analysis
  • soil C:N analysis
  • DNA extraction for amplicon sequencing

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