Research Opportunities

See list below for research opportunities for undergraduate students.

1. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

This is a unique opportunity to work with Emory faculty and professional research staff from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). We will work together to better understand the characteristic of eight regional Fisheries Management Councils that regulate marine fish species in United States waters. This will include gathering information of the political and economic characteristics of the Councils (and Council members); as well at the economic and biological characteristics of fish species managed by the Fishery Management Council system. This is an opportunity for student interested in environmental, natural resource, and sustainability issues -- regardless of major.

Under guidance from both Dr. Yandle (Emory) and Dr. Crosson (NOAA), the student will have an opportunity to engage in primary and secondary data gathering and integration. This will include internet-based research, as well as archival and database work. If time permits, the student may also be able to work on early data analysis. Skills required: 1) Able to stay organized 2) Highly motivated 3) Experience with Excel 4) Basic internet and library research skills
