Conducting Research

The Yale Forests welcome proposals from researchers across Yale and from other universities and organizations. All researchers must submit a research proposal through our online application form, which will be reviewed by the School Forest Research Committee prior to beginning any project.

Before submitting an application, please contact the Research Coordinator, Laura Green (YMFResearch@yale.edu) about your intended proposal.


Undergraduate students are invited to apply for the 2019 summer research internship in field ecology. Interns will work with professors, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students on a range of projects in field ecology. Interns will be housed at the Yale-Myers forest camp in northeastern Connecticut.  The 9-week internship  will run approximately from June 10th through August 2nd, with some flexibility.  Learn more about the Internship in Field Ecology.
