Ashley Dayer, PhD
Conservation Social Scientist, Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Visiting Assistant Professor, SUNY-ESF



I am currently recruiting students and alumni in aiding me in my sample collection portion for my masters project. My work is based in molecular genetics through Stellenbosch University and I am building my model around neonate and juvenile smooth hammerheads. I will be assessing the genetic health and relatedness of these sharks in order to elucidate their ecological significance to the area. The work for this is heavily sampling based, but interns will also get an opportunity to help out in the cage diving activities. In addition to this I will also be running tutorials with the team to give them an understanding of the practical skills used in population genetics. The duration of this will be from December 2014 to January 2015.

We have openings for 1-month or 2-month stints. If your students want more details or are interested in this, then they can let me know.
