NSF-REU Biosphere 2 at The University of Arizona

The Biosphere 2 REU provides 10 undergraduates an opportunity to conduct guided research in environmental and Earth systems science at a leading and unique research institution. Students will receive stipends of $5,000 for the 10-week research internship, housing on the Biosphere 2 campus, $500 to cover travel costs to and from Tucson, AZ and a food allowance. For 2017, the program runs from June 5 to August 11. Students will be selected from across the country to participate in the program. They will conduct research inside Biosphere 2, in labs on the University of Arizona campus, and in the desert and mountain ecosystems of southern Arizona. Project descriptions are available HERE.

The REU program at Biosphere 2 is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. We share the goals of the NSF to use the REU experience as a way to provide research opportunities for students who might not have such opportunities readily available at their home institutions. The summer program will allow students to gain experience in research firsthand, training and preparation for careers in science, and opportunities to communicate science to diverse audiences. Students will also work with partner organizations at the University of Arizona to connect research findings to applied environmental solutions. Participation in the REU program will help prepare students for graduate studies in science.

REU Program Background
The program is structured with five interrelated components:

  • the practice of research on individual projects,
  • the context of that research within the broader interdisciplinary Earth system sciences framework,
  • the relevance of that research in terms of environmental and societal challenges to foster practical solutions,
  • professional development related to successful pursuit of Earth and environmental science careers, and
  • the ability to effectively communicate the process, importance, and findings of research to broad audiences.

Students will conduct their own research under a mentor, interact with other participants and scientists at B2 and UA, and present research findings in a formal symposium setting. A unique part of the B2 REU experience will be the opportunity to interact with the 100,000 public visitors to B2 and be trained in outreach related to their research topics. Additionally, students will participate in professional development workshops and field trips to local attractions.

How To Apply
To apply to the B2 REU program, select "REU Application Form" from menu above or click HERE. Your application package will consist of (1) an application form that includes contact information, educational background, and optional information on gender and ethnic background; (2) a 2-page maximum narrative statement of educational and career goals, research experiences and interests; and (3) two letters of recommendation from faculty at your home institution. Application materials, including letters of recommendation must be received by March 1st, 2017.

Am I Eligible to Apply?
Students majoring in, or in a curriculum leading to, one of the following fields in environmental or Earth system science will be well suited to participate in the B2 REU: biology, ecology, plant sciences, hydrology, soil science, atmospheric science, geology, mathematics, physics, chemistry, or computer science. Accepted students typically have at least one year of college completed prior to the summer REU program and, following the experience, have at least one year of college left before graduation. Students typically have a minimum 3.0 G.P.A. and must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents to be eligible for NSF/REU grant support. We encourage applications from students in groups underrepresented in science.

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in Climate Change Impacts in Semi-Arid Regions

The University of Texas at Austin Environmental Science Institute

The Environmental Science Institute (ESI) of the University of Texas at Austin announces an NSF-funded program during the summer of 2016 for undergraduates interested in environmental science research. Students will be trained in laboratory and field methods applied to studies of global change and its impacts and will work on independent projects under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Project areas are interdisciplinary and encompass the fields of chemistry, biology, ecology, urban ecology, policy, environmental engineering, and geological sciences. Students will participate in a weekly research seminar series, portfolio creation, and professional development activities. Students will also participate in field excursions related to scientific research. These 1-2 day activities may require physical exertion involving hiking, caving, camping, and/or boat rides in hot and humid weather. The summer program will conclude with a research poster session and open house.

Further information may be found at: http://www.esi.utexas.edu/education/research-experience-for-undergraduates/

Applications are due February 17, 2016. Please contact lynnkatz@mail.utexas.edu or ehersh@esi.utexas.edu for more information.

NSF-REU Program at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech is sponsoring an NSF-REU program that focusses on Aquatic Chemical Ecology. The program website is http://www.biology.gatech.edu/undergrad/reu; it includes program details, contact information, and instructions for application.

The application deadline is February 15, 2016. The full-time, 10-week program will start May 22 and run until July 29. Participants will receive a stipend of $5000 plus accommodations with kitchen facilities in university housing, and help with travel expenses to and from Atlanta.

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.

The research theme of Aquatic Chemical Ecology is broadly interpreted. There are 3 core areas of research for students to choose from: 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.
