Research Experience for Undergraduates at University of Georgia

Applications are now being accepted for the summer of 2017 Research

Experience for Undergraduates in Population Ecology of Infectious Diseases,

hosted by the University of Georgia. We are excited about the program, which

strives to integrate experimental biological science with computational

methods and techniques to investigate a variety of areas in infectious

disease research. Our goal is to recruit both students with a background in

biology, with the intent of introducing them to computational techniques,

and also students with a background in mathematics and/or computer science,

in order to give them experience in data collection in a laboratory setting.
