THE BIOS REU PROGRAM IS OFFERED IN THE FALL ONLY 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 science, oceanography and atmospheric sciences!

BIOS has National Science Foundation REU funding to support 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, flora and fauna as well as career development 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. Underrepresented groups and students attending colleges or universities with limited STEM research opportunities are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Applicants are ineligible if they have participated in a previous NSF-funded REU in Ocean Sciences. Successful candidates are encouraged to arrange for independent study credit through their home institutions. Return airfare, campus accommodation, meals and a competitive stipend are covered by the REU program; medical/travel insurance is the responsibility of the student. The BIOS REU Program runs for 12 weeks from the end of August to mid-November.
