The EERREC REU provides students with immersion into research and professional development in preparation for a career in ecology and evolutionary biology.

Students will conduct individual mentored research aimed at understanding ecological and evolutionary responses of organisms, communities, and ecosystems to rapid environmental change and will present the results of their work at scientific conferences. Professional development includes a journal club, instruction in responsible conduct of research, scientific communication, and the scripting language R, discussion about careers in environmental biology, field trips to nearby research reserves, and post-program mentoring.

EEREC REU students will stay in UC Davis residence halls. We provide meals, a bicycle for local transportation, and a stipend of $5,000 for the eight-week program.
