Please share this call for applications with interested students. Some
of the potential mentors work on a range of topics in evolutionary
biology, including behavior, evolutionary ecology, evolutionary
genetics, mathematical modeling of biological systems, and
extremophiles and exobiology.
Environmental Science and Policy in the Nation’s Capital
An NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program at
Georgetown University’s REU Site program in Environmental Science and
Policy in the Nation’s Capital is seeking talented and engaged
undergraduate students. This ten-week program will bring a cohort of
ten students to Washington, D.C. to conduct hands-on research in
environmental science at Georgetown University and to take part in a
mini-curriculum that builds research skills and also explores the
intersections of science and public policy. Participating research
mentors have expertise in fields including behavior,
ecology, conservation biology, evolutionary ecology, evolutionary
genetics, mathematical modeling of biological systems, hydrology,
statistics for environmental and biological studies, and earth
science. See mentor research descriptions on the program web site.
Interested students are encouraged to contact potential mentors
The 2017 program will run from May 31 – August 5. Students will be
housed on the Georgetown campus and will receive a $5250 stipend plus
an allowance for food. To be eligible, applicants must be U. S.
citizens or permanent residents, full-time students as of August, 2017,
and available to participate full-time during the program. We are
striving for a diverse group, so students from groups typically
underrepresented in STEM fields are strongly encouraged to apply.
Review of applications will begin on February 17, 2017 and will be
accepted on a continuing until all positions are filled.
