Many research scientists, generally faculty or graduate students, spend the summer at the Station doing research. They often need research assistants. There are no restrictions to who may be an assistant and all arrangements are made with individual investigators. Some investigators only provide room-and-board expenses from their research grants; others can also pay a salary. It is good to contact researchers as soon as possible in the fall or winter to explore options. You should consider this a “summer job” helping a field biologist with their research, not as an opportunity for “independent” research; although some PIs give their assistants a great deal of responsibility and independence. Contact researchers directly if you are interested in a research assistantship.
