From Estuaries to the Deep Sea ..
If you are considering graduate study or a professional career in the marine sciences, developing research skills through hands-on experience is one of the most valuable learning opportunities you can have. This summer, Oregon State University will offer 20 students from all over the U.S. the opportunity to work with faculty mentors on research projects that advance knowledge and understanding of marine, coastal and estuarine environments.
The Research Experience for Undergraduatesprogram runs from June 17th to August 23rd, 2013 at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) in Newport and at the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences in Corvallis.
The HMSC in Newport is one of the largest marine labs in the Pacific Northwest, a thriving research community where students interact with university faculty and government agency scientists and have easy access to the “living laboratory” of Oregon’s coastal estuaries and the ocean. On the OSU main campus in Corvallis, the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences trains the next generation of biological, chemical, geological and physical oceanographers, offering opportunities for interdisciplinary research in world class labs and facilities. Funding for this REU site is provide by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Ocean Science’s located in Arlington, VA. The NSF contact for this program is Lisa Rom, elrom@NSF.gov or 703-292-7709. NSF does not handle REU applications; please contact each REU site directly for application information.
Currently enrolled undergraduates who have by June 2013 completed at least two years of coursework may apply, but must still be an undergraduate in Fall 2013. (Eligibility limited to U.S. citizens)
REU interns receive a weekly stipend, housing on-site, and round-trip transportation from their home area. Learn more and apply online.
