Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) with CCMI: Coral Reef Biodiversity and Resilience at the Little Cayman Research Centre


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) invites undergraduate students interested in ocean sciences to apply to the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in Coral Reef Biodiversity and Resilience on Little Cayman. CCMI has support from the National Science Foundation for eight students, who will each be paired with a research mentor for an 8 week experience living and working at our Little Cayman Research Centre (LCRC). REU participants, under the guidance of their mentors, will each design, conduct, and communicate a research project in an effort to positively contribute to the conservation and management of reefs by advancing our knowledge on the processes that drive coral reef resilience to disturbances on multiple spatial and temporal scales. In addition to conducting their own research, REU participants will attend workshops on career skills in science, participate in excursions on and around Little Cayman, and interact with local conservation professionals.
