Internships and REUs
Fall Adirondack Residential Semester
Thursday, February 14, 2013 12:49 PM

SUNY-ESF’s Adirondack Residential Semester (ARS) is a five-course, 15-credit, interdisciplinary semester placing students in the center of the Adirondack Park, physically and intellectually.

The 14-week semester, open to any interested upper-division undergraduate or graduate students from the SUNY system or other public or private colleges and universities, is unlike any other Adirondack semester: from academic rigor to intellectually stimulation, unparalleled location to fantastic value, the ARS is the most rewarding field-based semester you will spend on or off (way off) campus.

Univ. of Kentucky Summer REU program
Friday, February 08, 2013 06:20 PM

The University of Kentucky is pleased to announce that in the summer of 2013, we will again host a 10-week summer program for undergraduate research on suburban ecology and invasive species, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

Ten students will be recruited from across the United States, and matched to faculty mentors who are conducting research on a wide variety of invasive species (e.g. house sparrows, Japanese honeysuckle) over a range of environments along an urban to rural gradient, from backyards to farms. Students will be exposed to the full spectrum of a research project, from the underlying ecological theory, the formulation of hypotheses, the design of experiments, the analyses of data, and the write up for publication.

Summer Research at The Wetlands Institute
Monday, February 04, 2013 09:41 AM

Hosted by The Wetlands Institute, in Cape May County, NJ, the Coastal Conservation Research Program (CCRP) is a 10-week summer research experience for undergraduates interested in careers in fields related to conservation biology, ecology, and coastal ecosystems.

Located on 6,000 acres of coastal salt marsh, The Wetlands Institute promotes research, education, and conservation through a variety of methods including classes, field research, and local community involvement. The CCRP focuses its research and conservation efforts on issues related to our close proximity to the dense human population of the northeastern United States.

Over the past 20 years, nearly 200 college and university students from over 100 academic institutions throughout the United States and abroad have participated in our program. Our goal is to engage highly motivated undergraduate students in ecological research and community-based conservation. Ten undergraduate students will be selected to participate in this hands-on, field-oriented research program. Student participants in our program are expected to complete a research project during the summer under the direction of CCRP scientists. An annual research seminar is held at the end of the internship where all students give a short presentation of their work. Application deadline is March 1, 2013

Integrative Biology and Ecology of Marine Organisms 2013

Blinks - NSF REU - BEACON Internship Program
Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Application deadline: March 1, 2013

Program dates: June 18 to August 10, 2013

Friday Harbor Laboratories' Blinks - NSF REU - BEACON Summer Internship Program seeks to link undergraduate students with scientist-mentors as collaborators in marine science research projects. The program takes advantage of the pristine environment, remarkable biodiversity, and the scientific and technical resources at University of Washington's marine science research facility. 

We have combined the NSF REU program with the Blinks Research Fellowship program, which targets groups who are historically underrepresented in the marine sciences, with the NSF-funded BEACON Program. With additional support from the United Negro College Fund, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the American Society for Cell Biology, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, and the Anne Hof Blinks Memorial Fellowship, the Blinks-REU Program offers a full immersion research experience for motivated undergraduates, post-baccalaureates and graduate students.

In keeping with the University of Washington's policy of encouraging diversity in its student body including underrepresented groups, the program seeks 10-15 students of diverse backgrounds and interests to participate in a eight to twelve week summer research project in the marine sciences. By linking fellows with marine scientists in a 1:1 research experience, fellows learn both the process and the substance of scientific research. As the research progresses, fellows will be encouraged to become semi-independent collaborators. The experience will expose fellows to the life and work of a marine science research laboratory. The program will incorporate workshops, seminars and training sessions in addition to hands-on research.
