An REU internship at Bermuda Institute for Ocean Sciences is a great way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in the marine and atmospheric sciences!

BIOS has National Science Foundation REU funding to support 8 undergraduate student researchers at BIOS during the fall semester. Students will conduct independent projects under faculty and staff supervision within several research areas including:

• Biology, chemistry, and physics of the open ocean

• Biology, physiology, and biochemistry of reef building corals and reef ecosystems

• Molecular biology of marine organisms

• Environmental chemistry of Bermuda's atmosphere and inshore waters

• Effects and consequences of global environmental change

Throughout the semester, REU students will give presentations that outline their research topic, methods, and results, including a final presentation to BIOS faculty, staff, and visiting students. REU students will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of field excursions to learn about Bermuda's natural history, as well as workshops and seminars given by BIOS faculty.

Eligibility and Terms of Internship

Students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate study and have not graduated at the time of the program are eligible to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Applicants may be ineligible if they have participated in a previous NSF-funded REU in Ocean Sciences (other disciplines are eligible to apply). BIOS encourages all successful applicants to arrange for independent study credit through their home institutions. Students will reside on the BIOS campus. Travel expenses, accommodations, meals, and a competitive stipend will be covered by the REU program; medical/travel insurance is the responsibility of the student.
