The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) has received funding from NSF for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program to support nine internships for undergraduate student research at BIOS this Fall. An REU internship at BIOS is a great way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in the marine and ocean sciences.

Funding includes air fare (from and to the U.S.) campus accommodation and meals. Each successful REU applicant will also receive a competitive stipend.

This life-changing 12-week program provides participants with the opportunity to conduct intensive, hands-on individual research projects in a collaborative team environment under the expert mentorship of BIOS faculty and staff. The BIOS REU program is offered in the FALL only.

This year's REU research projects will be based around the following broad research themes:

•Measuring Coral Reef Community Light-Use Efficiency

•Coral Reef Function: Environmental Drivers of Organism and Community Scale Metabolism

•Coral Larval Settlement and Recruitment Dynamics

Further information on the REU program at BIOS can be found on our website!

Underrepresented groups and students attending colleges or universities with limited STEM research opportunities are particularly encouraged to apply.
