Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences: Environmental Science
FULLY FUNDED MARINE SCIENCE, OCEANOGRAPHIC AND ATMOSPHERIC UNDERGRADUATE INTERNSHIPS
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) has funding from the National Science Foundation, (NSF Award number OCE-2050858), for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program to support nine x 12-week internships for undergraduate student research at BIOS during fall 2021 (starts August 30, ends November 19).
An REU internship at BIOS is a great way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in oceanography and the marine and atmospheric sciences.
Students will conduct individual research projects in a collaborative team environment under the expert mentorship of BIOS faculty and staff. This year's REU research projectswill be based around the following broad research themes:
Coral Reef Systems Ecology
Plastics in the Marine Environment
Biological Production and Exports: Assessing the Biological Carbon Pump in the Sargasso Sea
Throughout the semester, REU students will give presentations that outline their research topic, methods, and results, including a final presentation to BIOS faculty, staff, and visiting students. REU students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of field excursions to learn about Bermuda's natural history, flora and fauna. We also offer a program of career development workshops and seminars.
Funding includes return air travel from the U.S. to Bermuda, accommodation and meals. Each successful REU applicant will also receive a competitive stipend. (Medical/travel insurance is the responsibility of the student).
Further information on the REU program at BIOS can be found here http://www.bios.edu/education/reu/ including a link to the online application form, past student testimonials and details of potential projects.
To be eligible, applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, over 18 years of age and enrolled in a program of undergraduate study immediately before and after the program dates.
We urge all successful applicants to arrange for independent study credit through their home institutions.
Underrepresented groups, and students attending colleges or universities where research opportunities in STEM are limited, are especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants are ineligible if they have participated in a prior NSF-funded REU in Ocean Sciences.
BIOS is an independent US non-profit scientific research and educational organization based in Bermuda. For over 100 years BIOS-based researchers and visiting scientists have worked to explore the ocean and address important local and global environmental issues.
BIOS's mission is to seek and share fundamental knowledge of the oceans through state-of-the-art research, world-class field expeditions and comprehensive educational experiences.
