The University of Toledo seeks students for our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, "Addressing Environmental Challenges and Proposing Sustainable Solutions at the Lake Erie Land-Lake Interface". We are seeking 10 students to join our team. Students will work in laboratories at the University of Toledo's Lake Erie Center, Main Campus, and/or Health Science Campus.

Students will address complex challenges at the land-lake interface to understand how natural resource use impacts biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and public health, with the goal of advancing environmental sustainability. Students will be paired with faculty and graduate student mentors from the Departments of Environmental Sciences, Geography and Planning, Public Health, Medicine or Engineering, and will conduct independent research in ecology, limnology, remote sensing, medicine, public health, or engineering. Experiences will introduce students to the diverse habitats and ecological challenges facing Lake Erie, and students will receive training in research ethics, experimental design, data analysis, writing scientific papers and applying to graduate school. Students will write a final report and present their research at a public poster gala.
