Do you relish being in the desert in late spring?  Does the idea
of learning (not nearly) all there is to know about field
entomology (the study of insects) appeal to you?  How does the
concept of spending an inordinate quantity of time digging through
forest leaf litter on you hands and knees strike you?  Well now you
can realize these goals and many others in May and June of this
year (including your secret fantasy of chasing obscure beetles
through the desert)!  Applications are currently being accepted for
field assistants for the coming summer.  Your
responsibilities/opportunities will include helping in the search
for five species of beetles, all of which are well-integrated hosts
in the nests of ants of the genus Liometopum in Arizona, Colorado,
New Mexico, Texas, and California.  Additionally, we will carry out
a number of behavioral experiments primarily concerned with
understanding the integration mechanisms that the beetles use to
gain entry into the ants' nests.  In return, I will supply gas,
transportation, lodging (tents), and a bountiful storehouse of
entomological knowledge, as well as sharing with you some of the
most breathtaking areas of the United States.  I will be traveling
from Lawrence, Kansas through these areas from May 6-20 and from
June 2-28.  If you are interested in participating in some or all
of this project, email me directly and I will give you the details
of the study as well as answer any questions you may have.
