REU Program in Animal BehaviorView this Opportunity's Website Academic Level:
Funded by the National Science Foundation, our program offers a unique opportunity for talented undergraduates to spend the summer doing state-of-the-art research and gain valuable skills while exploring career opportunities in the sciences. During the first two weeks, interns divide their time between group training activities and their home laboratories. The group training activities include research seminar presentations, hands-on training in field and laboratory techniques, a trip behind the scenes at the Indianapolis Zoo, and a workshop on research ethics. For the remainder of the summer, students conduct individual research projects under the guidance of their mentors and prepare final presentations of the results. We also offer brief workshops on taking the GRE, applying to graduate school, and designing professional presentations in Power Point.
Our program has been running since 1990 and is one of the most successful undergraduate summer research programs in the country.Program Materials:This Program can be Described by:
