Description:
Central Michigan University is seeking undergraduate students to participate in a 10-week paid research experience for undergraduates (REU) program at its Biological Station (CMUBS) on Beaver Island, MI. This REU program will support the training of 8 undergraduate students (open to non-CMU students) during the summer. During the 10-week program, students will work with CMU faculty to develop and conduct research projects (ranging from limnology, fisheries biology, conservation and spatial ecology to molecular ecology and microbial ecology) addressing important issues in the Laurentian Great Lakes (one of the world?s most important and threatened freshwater ecosystems). The program will allow students to gain hands-on experience in all parts of the scientific process, from experimental design through data communication. Students will receive a $5,750 stipend, together with free room and board and up to $500 for travel to CMU's main campus in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.
