Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Warm-water Aquatic Ecology Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama, USA Summer 2013: May 26 to August 4

We are excited to invite applications from undergraduate students to participate in a National Science Foundation supported summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program focused on the ecology of southeastern ponds, rivers, reservoirs, and estuaries. Ten undergraduate students will work closely with Auburn University faculty (Fisheries, Biology, and Forestry) to explore aquatic ecosystems, complete a student-driven research project, and share their research findings in a symposium at the conclusion of the program. Participants will work closely with our mentors to develop projects on a variety of disciplines, including community ecology, limnology, evolution, fisheries management, population modeling, conservation, molecular biology, and microbiology. The program will run from May 26 to August 4, 2013 (10 weeks). To stay up-to-date with the 2013 selection process and to learn about last summer’s program, check us out on Facebook –
