Oregon State U Research Experience for Undergrads (REU) - $5650, Community College Students Encouraged to Apply! Due 2/14/14
Come discover the Oregon Coast!
From Estuaries to the Deep Sea...OSU's Research Experience for Undergraduates...
Underrepresented and Community College students are encouraged to apply.
Are you a Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Computer Science major? Take advantage of the opportunity to gain research experience while exploring the exciting interdisciplinary field of marine and estuarine science research!
Oregon State University is offering summer marine science internships to 20 college students through its Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport and College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences in Corvallis. The 10-week program matches qualified students with faculty mentors representing a wide range of ocean science research interests, including: Cetacean/Fisheries Conservation Genetics; Marine Aquaculture; Physical, Chemical and Biological Oceanography; Marine Geology; Coastal Ecology; Marine Renewable Energy; Marine Biological Invasions; Satellite Remote Sensing and many others.
The Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) is a 49-acre research and education campus on Oregon's central coast, with modern laboratory facilities, a world-class marine science library, and six state and federal agencies co-located on site with easy access to the "living laboratory" of Oregon's coastal estuaries and the ocean. Scientists representing the U.S. Fish & Wildlife, USDA, USGS, EPA, NOAA Fisheries, and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife serve with OSU faculty as mentors in the REU program. Situated on the south shore of Newport’s picturesque Yaquina Bay, the HMSC provides easy access to the ocean and estuary for field research and recreational activities alike. 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 and Earth System Scientists, offering opportunities or interdisciplinary research in world-class labs and facilities.

The University of Texas Marine Science Institute REU Program is accepting applications for their summer research opportunity for undergraduates. The program is looking for eight talented undergraduates who are dedicated, detail-oriented, hardworking and interested in marine science. The program offers research in the areas of fish physiology and ecology, ecosystem dynamics, and biogeochemistry. The program begins with a research cruise on the R/V Katy, ten weeks of research, seminars and workshops, culminating in a symposium where the students will present their accomplishments. Student projects take advantage of the wide variety of coastal habitats near the Institute, including shallow bays, hypersaline lagoons, seagrass beds, estuaries, mangroves, and marshes. It is a great opportunity to gain valuable research experience and spend a summer by the sea!
Applications will be accepted until March 7, 2014. Required application materials include an online application, unofficial transcripts, professor recommendation forms and recommendation letters from two professors. Students must be currently enrolled as an undergraduate and be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and its possessions. Students will receive a stipend of $5,000 for the ten-week program, full room and board, a research allowance and a travel allowance. The program runs from June 2nd - August 8th, 2014. Interested applicants can check out the website at http://reu.utmsi.utexas.edu, or contact Dr. Deana Erdner or Dr. Ben Walther at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Bureau of Safety & Environmental Enforcement (BESEE) from the U.S. Department of the Interior has many entry-level positions available for geoscience students. Check the site often if you are interested in this type of career. Many of their openings are in the Gulf of Mexico region and Alaska.
