The University of Kansas Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology/Kansas Biological Survey is recruiting students to participate in Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) opportunity for the upcoming summer. The REU opportunities are part of the New Roots for Restoration Biology Integration Institute, a National Science Foundation funded initiative whose overarching focus is how plant organismal systems (plant roots and shoots) relate to one another and how those relationships influence and are influenced by plant communities and the soil ecosphere. REU participants working at the University of Kansas will conduct research, participate in the broader institute through in-person and virtual meetings, and will join a near-peer mentoring scheme in which they work closely with graduate students, postdocs, and professors to achieve research, training, and diversifying goals.

This REU opportunity takes place at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS and runs for 10 weeks.

Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program. Students who have already graduated with a four-year degree are not eligible. Applicants must be U.S. Citizens or permanent residents.

REU interns receive $6000 stipend for the program, and food and lodging if needed.
