Undergraduate Research

Dr. Gail Fraizer and former Kent State University undergraduate, Rachel Leahy. Ms. Leahy completed an honors thesis project working with Dr. Fraizer on prostate cancer.

Research experience may also be obtained through internships. If you are considering doing an internship (paid or unpaid) to gain more experience in your field, visit the Internship Bulletin Board to look for opportunities (top of the main stairs on the second floor above the main entrance, opposite room 201) Credit for internship may be received by taking BSCI 40192 . All internships must be approved in advance by the department Undergraduate Coordinator.

Undergraduates may participate in research projects through individual investigations and through the Honors College. Students should contact their advisor or any member of the faculty for information. Students may then enroll in BSCI 2016 (Introduction to Individual Investigation) or 40196 (Individual Investigation).

Undergrad Research Assistants, Volunteer and Part-time

Dr. P. Bernstein:  I am currently seeking 1-2 students who are interested in working on social behavior and communication in animals. I could use help analyzing my cat surveys or I would be willing to advise on an independent study or internships (zoos, etc).

Dr. F. de Szalay:  We are currently looking for undergraduates with experience in Invertebrate Zoology to assist in the field and in the lab. In the lab, the student would learn sorting and identifying techniques. In the field, the student would become familiar with many wetland monitoring techniques and possibly invertebrate and plant data collection methods.
