Description:
The Oregon Institute of Marine Biology’s research experience for undergraduates program, “Exploration of Marine Biology on the Oregon Coast” (EMBOC) offers fellowship opportunities for undergraduate students from both 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities to participate in ongoing marine science research at the University of Oregon’s marine lab during the summer months. In addition to conducting research at OIMB, students participating in the EMBOC program will participate in weekly professional development discussions and training sessions, social activities, field trips and marine biology seminars.

Participating students receive a $600/week stipend ($5400 total for 9 weeks, paid monthly). Travel to and from OIMB is covered. In addition, room and board will be provided at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology for the duration of the 9-week EMBOC program.

Due to commitments to still-qualified 2020 cohort members, the EMBOC REU seeks to fill only 4 of 10 intern positions for summer 2021. The EMBOC program is committed to diversifying the next generation of marine scientists in the research community. We strongly encourage students from underrepresented groups to apply.
