Current Research Positions
Current undergraduate paid and unpaid research positions and general faculty research projects for undergraduate researchers.
Stable isotopes as hydroclimatic indicators
Paleoclimate reconstructions in the southern Rocky Mountains
NSF REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) opportunities in mineral physics, planetary interiors, and methane hydrate research.
Additionally, Dr. Lin helps connect students with summer research internships in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and China
Join the Martindale Research Group for research opportunities in mass extinctions, reef paleo-ecology, and more!
Using Waller Creek as a case study, we synthesize data from environmental sensors, measures of organic matter dynamics, and surveys of algal biomass and production to assess whether large-scale restoration efforts lead to “sustainable” creek ecosystems – meaning that the energy produced within the creek ecosystem (including riparian) can provide enough energy to sustain diverse creek communities. I currently need upper division students to conduct research on 1) spatio-temporal dynamics of dissolved organic matter, 2) seasonal shifts in algal production in relation to anthropogenic nutrient influxes, and 3) work with environmental sensor data to assess whether/how specific hydrologic changes alter metabolic regimes in creeks – as measured by dissolved oxygen dynamics.

Dr. Julia Clarke’s lab regularly works with 2-5 undergraduate collaborators, and Dr. Clarke is open to advising or co-advising theses.
“I feel undergraduate research is one of the most important aspects of undergraduate education. Visit my lab website to learn more about what students in the lab are doing: www.juliaclarke-paleolab.com.”
The Stockli research group has a long tradition of involving undergraduate students in field and laboratory based research. For example:
- “Long-term cooling history of Llano Uplift” – Claire Andrews (2017)
- “Detrital Provenance of Pennsylvanian Strawn and Cisco sandstones in central Texas” – P. Standring and T. Ditges (2020)
