NSF-REU at Virginia Institute of Marine Science

Each year the Summer Intern Program - Research Experience for Undergraduates at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) places 12 to 15 undergraduates with faculty mentors for a summer research experience. Internships are available in many areas of marine science, including marine biology and ecology; biological, geological, chemical, and physical oceanography; environmental science; fisheries; and resource management.

The basis of the Summer Intern Program is a highly individualized research experience for each student coupled with group activities. As an intern in the VIMS/SMS program, you'll work closely with a mentor, and often within the context of a research team, to develop an individual project. Depending on the project, the summer may involve lots of 'hands-on' experience in the field or laboratory, or both. You'll have access to one of the best marine science libraries in the country, as well as extensive computer facilities. Interns are expected to work with their mentors to develop a project idea in the form of a brief research prospectus, conduct their research, and then present results in a final program that is open to the VIMS community. Interns also prepare a summary research paper that is maintained in the program archives. In some cases, this has been the basis for a subsequent publication in the scientific literature. For more information on intern research projects, check out the student research page.

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.
