REU: Ecology, Evolution and Behavior Field Research at Mountain Lake Biological Station


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

Description:
Mountain Lake Biological Station's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU-Sites) program has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF, DBI-1005104) since 1993. The program brings undergraduate students from around the country together for an exciting ten-week summer program of guided, but independent, original research in field biology.

The MLBS REU program provides participants with take home a stipend of $5,000; it covers all room and board expenses and has a project and travel budget. Participants pay no fees or tuition charges of any kind.

The Experience

Student researchers work closely with researcher mentors in compatible fields of interest. Students take leadership roles in all aspects of the study; they design the study and prepare the proposal, collect data and perform analysis, and finally they interpret the results and prepare a written and oral presentation. Compared to many other REU programs, ours offers a high degree of independence in project choice and design.

Mountain Lake is also special in its exciting, diverse, and friendly academic community. This atmosphere fosters collaboration at all levels, and promotes the constant exchange of ideas with fellow students and scientists. Many projects are submitted for publication in leading biological journals. Students also participate in a weekly seminar about the conduct of biological research. REU participants have access to state-of-the-art facilities and are granted full use of all Station scientific and computer equipment. English is used throughout the program.
