Marine Science Internships and Jobs
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
