The Shannon Point Marine Center is now accepting applications for the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Program participants spend 9 weeks working one-on-one with faculty mentors studying themes related to productivity and nutrient cycling in local watershed systems; ocean acidification; marine microbial ecology; marine chemical ecology; physiology of symbiosis; ecology and physiology of seaweeds; physiology, ecology, and development of invertebrate larvae; and environmental toxicology. Participant support includes a $5400 stipend, a $675 food allowance, housing in the SPMC dormitory, and a $650 travel allowance.

Application information and program details are available on our website. Continuing SPMC's long-standing tradition of working with diverse students, we strongly encourage applications from underserved, underrepresented, and under-resourced individuals. Applications are welcome from students at any stage of their undergraduate degree program, and individual without previous research opportunities are particularly encouraged to apply.
