Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Whitney Laboratory Research Experience for Undergraduate program (REU), funded by the National Science Foundation (Site Award 0648969), offers an exceptional opportunity for the motivated undergraduate to participate in scientific research. If you are serious about science but have never had the opportunity to perform work as a scientist, then this program is for you.

Research Topics/Keywords: evolution, embryogenesis, genomics, bioinformatics, marine biology, development, coastal ecology, biogeochemistry, molecular biology, locomotion, neurobiology

In cooperation with a faculty supervisor, students choose a project that fits both their interests and ongoing investigations of the Lab and that can be completed within the eleven-week training period during the summer.

The 2016 REU online application is open until February 12, 2016. Internship runs June 1st - August 9th.

Undergraduates who qualify for the REU Program receive a competitive stipend, assistance with travel expenses, and housing. Students must be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency to qualify for NSF funding. Students from groups under-represented in the sciences (African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders), first generation college students, women and non-traditional students are encouraged to apply.
