Subject: [ECOLOG-L] NSF-REU at Georgia Tech
We will be hosting 9 NSF-REU participants this summer at Georgia Tech
focusing loosely on the theme of Aquatic Chemical Ecology. We would like
to ask for your help in publicizing this program to undergraduates.
Our program website is http://www.biology.gatech.edu/undergraduate-
including program details, application process, and contact information.
Our research theme of Aquatic Chemical Ecology has 3 core areas of research
from which students can choose: Biological and geochemical transformations
of chemicals in aquatic ecosystems; Sensory biology and ecology of aquatic
chemical communication; Ecological roles and consequences of chemicals in
aquatic environments. This program is an excellent choice for
undergraduates majoring in any field of biology, chemistry, earth/ocean
science, civil engineering, environmental engineering, chemical engineering,
and related bioengineering areas who want to apply their classroom learning
to an interdisciplinary research environment to solve complex scientific
problems and learn about the
importance of chemically-mediated processes.
The application deadline is February 15, 2011. The full-time, 10-week
program will start in late May and run until the end of July.
Participants will receive a stipend of $4500 plus accommodations with
kitchen facilities in university housing, and help with travel expenses to
and from Atlanta.
Students can go to our website to get more information and to apply. Any
U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is currently enrolled in an
undergraduate degree program is eligible, unless they have already been part
of an NSF-REU program in Ocean Sciences or unless they will graduate before
this summer. We are particularly interested in increasing our proportion of
minority students and in reaching students at non-PhD
We hope that you can send us your bright, curious, and motivated students!
