Great Lakes REU, Summer 2017

FW by Andy Wilson

>>>>

Central Michigan University is seeking undergraduate students to participate in a 10-week research experience at its Biological Station (CMUBS) on Beaver Island. This program will provide funding for 5-7 undergraduates to work with CMU faculty on research projects related to the chemical and physical aspects of nearshore Lake Michigan and how these aspects affect algal, invertebrate, and fish communities. Research will also emphasize how water currents alter the availability of nutrients, the abundance and diversity of organisms, and nearshore-offshore coupling.

Students will live and work on Beaver Island from May 21 – July 29, 2017, receiving a $4,500 stipend, together with free room and board and up to $500 for travel to Beaver Island.

More information on the program and the online application are available at: https://www.cmich.edu/colleges/cst/cmubs/Pages/CMU-Great-Lakes-Summer-Research-Program.aspx.
