Applications are now being accepted for the summer 2014 Ecosystem Restoration through Interdisciplinary Exchange (ERIE) REU at the State University of New York at Buffalo (UB). The ERIE-REU, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, provides the opportunity for undergraduate students to conduct interdisciplinary faculty-mentored research on a diverse array of projects related to ecological restoration of aquatic systems.
Students involved in the ERIE-REU program will receive one-on-one mentoring in the conduct of environmental research, focused training in environmental and professional development topics, and exposure to a variety of research methods. The program includes weekly group meetings to share research progress, and culminates with a symposium in which each student will present his/her research findings in oral and poster formats. In addition, students will participate in social events and field trips highlighting ecosystem restoration efforts and the environment of western New York and the lower Great Lakes region.
REU participants will receive a $500/week stipend (total of $5,000) and on-campus housing in a newly constructed LEED-certified student complex. A full time commitment to REU activity is expected (i.e., participants do not enroll in academic classes during the same period). Participation is limited to U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and students must be enrolled as undergraduate students in a college program through Fall of the following year (graduating seniors are ineligible). Most successful applicants have completed their junior year of study, although well-qualified sophomores are encouraged to apply.
All eligible undergraduate students interested in environmental/civil/chemical engineering, biology, chemistry, geology, or geography are encouraged to submit an on-line application; application instructions, faculty participants, and more information can be found at http://www.erie.buffalo.edu/REU_apply.php. Students from underrepresented groups or attending institutions lacking research facilities or opportunities are especially encouraged to apply.
The State University of New York at Buffalo is a premier research-intensive public university, a flagship institution in the State University of New York system and its largest and most comprehensive campus. UB's more than 29,000 students pursue their academic interests through more than 300 undergraduate, graduate and professional degree programs. Founded in 1846, the University at Buffalo is a member of the Association of American Universities.
