2018 Ocean Science Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program

I am enlisting your assistance in advertising the 2018 Ocean Science Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program at California State University, Monterey Bay to your students. We are now accepting applications for our 2018 summer program.

Students in our REU program can choose to conduct research in Monterey Bay in the following areas (the list of research topics within each area is not exhaustive):

Marine Biology and Ecology (includes population ecology, kelp forest ecology, marine landscape ecology, marine microbiology, population genetics, ecophysiology and biomechanics)

Ocean Engineering (includes ocean robotics, autonomous underwater vehicle design, computer programming, scientific instrumentation development)

Oceanography (includes ocean current modeling, ocean-atmosphere interactions, ocean acidification and plankton ecology)


Marine Geology (includes deep sea canyon formation, coastal hydrology, seafloor mapping, coastal erosion, plate tectonics and marine biogeochemistry)

In addition to electing to work with mentors at CSU Monterey Bay students can also elect to work with mentors at our Monterey Bay area REU partner institutions. These include:

Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve
Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute 
Moss Landing Marine Labs
Naval Postgraduate School


Students will be provided with a $5,000 stipend in addition to support for travel, room and board. REU students will also receive post REU support to attend conferences and in applying to graduate programs. The application portal will close on February 16th, 2018 at 11:59 PM PST. Our 10 week summer program will run from June 3rd to August 11th, 2016. Additional program details can be found on our homepage: https://csumb.edu/reu

We especially encourage applications from student groups historically underrepresented in the Ocean Sciences and students from institutions where research opportunities are limited (Junior/Community Colleges, Tribal Colleges, HBCUs and HSIs). Preference is given to student applicants who are current sophomores or juniors.

 

Please feel free to have your students contact us at our REU email address (reu@csumb.edu) with their questions. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you for your assistance and hope everyone is doing well.Corey
