STRI-REU Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama
Research Experience for Undergraduates 2014

Program Dates: Jun. 9-Aug. 15
Application deadline: March 30

We are currently recruiting applicants for the Research Experience For Undergraduates in Integrative Biology (REU-STRI) program 2014. This 10-week summer program is directed to 3rd or 4th year undergraduates enrolled in the traditional life science departments (e.g. biology, ecology, botany, etc.), as well as, engineering, mathematics, and computer science departments. We also encourage applications from groups under-represented in the sciences. Applicants must be US or Latin American citizens or permanent residents.

Built on three themes: (1) Adaptation and Resilience, (2) Species Interactions, and (3) Drivers of Ecosystem Change, the program gives undergraduate students an opportunity to explore how biological systems can be integrated to address questions of the origins, maintenance and preservation of biodiversity. Students will learn about the various tools needed to work with the data types that are transforming science across the three themes.

This unique internship opportunity offers airfare, housing, food allowance, and a $5,000 USD stipend. If you would like to apply, you should first browse through the list of potential mentors and project descriptions and identify up to three distinct projects/mentors that align with your own scientific interests. There is no need to contact the mentor before submitting you application.

All application materials, with the exception of the recommendation letters, must be compiled into a single electronic pdf file.

The file should be named as follows: SURNAME_FIRST INITIAL_REU.pdf and sent to [email protected] For further questions about the application process please contact us: [email protected] or check our website.

The Yosemite Environmental Science Research Training (YESRT) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is available to all college students nationwide. It is a ten week paid intership that takes place largely in Yosemite National Park.

Sucessful applicants will be working with mentors from UC Merced, Yosemite National Park Service, and the United States Geological Survey, Western Ecological Research Center. There are a broad range of potential projects available, from conservation, biological diversity, to engineering and social science. Students will be living at the SNRI Yosemite Field Station located in Wawona.

Student activities consist of individual research projects, spanning a broad range of disciplines such as Ecology, Geoscience, Biodiversity, Conservation, Restoration, Hydrology, and Engineering. Research training is provided by mentors from UCM (Schools of Natural Sciences, Engineering, and Social Sciences) and the USGS Western Ecological Research Center. Students also participate in a series of field trips led by teams of UCM, USGS, and NPS scientists focusing on Yosemite ad the Sierra Nevada. Finally the students attend a weekly seminar in Environmental Science. The successful students will be staying at the SNRS Yosemite Field Station, located in the village of Wawona just inside the south entrance to Yosemite National Park.

The Field Station is used by researchers and other students all summer. In 2014 the program will run from June 15th to August 23rd.

The 2014 list of projects can be found here.
