Summer job working on bees and pollination in Connecticut
Hi beemonitoring crowd,
Want a summer job?
I have some funding for research on pollination of pumpkin and squash and other bee-related projects. The 5 positions go from May 1 to October 31. You won’t get rich, but you will get out onto Connecticut vegetable farms and collect a lot of bees. During pumpkin and squash pollination, you will delve deeply into the question of whether there are pollination deficits in these crops, and you will be part of a team studying factors that may be affecting pumpkin pollinators (pathogens, pesticides, landscape biodiversity).
As it says in the attached announcement, send your information to my Department Head, Kirby Stafford.
