The Biology Department announces the 2011 Research Experience in Molecular Ecology Program. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation (REU) and Towson University. This program is designed for students with an interest in ecology and the application of molecular tools to that field. The Program is particularly geared towards students with no prior research experience and students from groups underrepresented in the sciences.
Students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and have completed freshman level courses in Chemistry, Biology, Geology or Environmental Science. Prior experience in multiple disciplines is not necessary but students should be interested in working within an interdisciplinary environment.
Students will earn a $4000 stipend over the 9 week program. Housing will be provided in 2 to 4 bedroom apartments on Towson University campus along with a meal allowance that can be used at campus dining facilities.
Deadline: March 15, 2011
