Many graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in entomology and other sciences are in position to mentor undergraduate students as they earn their early experiences in research settings. Here's advice on how to foster successful up-and-coming scientists.
As entomology students advance toward their degrees, the reference sections of their research papers grow and grow with each new project. One entomology graduate student tested out two free reference generator programs and offers her review of each.
A successful science lab is a dynamic, carefully balanced environment not unlike the natural ecosystems that many of us study. Attention to the relationships, individual personalities, and unique stresses of scientific work are all critical to fostering a healthy, balanced lab environment. One entomologist who's worked in roles from undergraduate research assistant to lab leader shares her advice.
Meet Avery Russell, entomologist and assistant professor at Missouri State University, behavioral and evolutionary ecologist, and subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
