Research Experiences for Undergraduate in
Marine Biology in Alaska, 2001

The University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) offers research experiences to
undergraduate students interested in the physiology, ecology, and
behavior of marine organisms. In addition to the Juneau area, field
research projects take place in Glacier Bay National Park, the Gulf of
Alaska, and the Arctic Ocean.

Students will conduct research under the guidance of UAS Biology faculty
and collaborating research scientists. The program is supported with
funds from the National Science Foundation and UAS. Participants will
receive a stipend of $325 per week and housing while in Juneau. Travel
and subsistence costs within Alaska will also be provided.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enrolled as
undergraduates (through at least Fall 2001) at accredited institutions.
The program seeks academically strong students interested in marine
biological research. Minority applicants are especially encouraged.
The deadline for applications is FEBRUARY 15, 2001. (See WEB site
address below for application information.)

Field research projects include:

BEHAVIORAL ECOLOGY OF RINGED SEALS

POPULATION BIOLOGY AND BEHAVIOR OF STELLER SEA LIONS

BEHAVIOR OF HARBOR PORPOISES

POPULATION BIOLOGY OF HARBOR SEALS IN GLACIER BAY

EFFECTS OF VESSEL TRAFFIC ON HARBOR SEALS

DISTRIBUTION, DENSITY, AND BEHAVIOR OF HUMPBACK WHALES AT POINT
ADOLPHUS, ICY STRAIT

EFFECTS OF TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS (TDS) ON SALMONIDS

REGULATION OF GROWTH AND REPRODUCTION IN DECAPOD CRUSTACEA

LARVAL DEVELOPMENT OF DUNGENESS CRABS

REPRODUCTION, LARVAL DEVELOPMENT AND POPULATIONS DYNAMICS OF BENTHIC
MARINE INVERTEBRATES

INTERACTIONS OF PARASITES WITH DUNGENESS AND KING CRAB

BIOCHEMISTRY OF CRUSTACEAN HORMONES

NURSERY AREAS FOR DUNGENESS CRABS
