Kansas State U Summer REU

Thedeadline for the REU site program at Kansas State University “Ecology
and Evolutionary Biology of Changing Environments: Integrating from
Genomes to Biomes” is a little more than two weeks away.  We invite
applications for the 10-week summer program, which will provide a
foundation in integrative research, scientific communication, and
professional development in ecology and evolutionary biology. Each
summer we have a diverse set of research projects addressing responses
to changing environments and the underlying genetic, developmental,
physiological, or ecological mechanisms. Over 30 faculty from the
Division of Biology and Departments of Entomology, Plant Pathology,
and Statistics are available to serve as mentors.

Summer2017 is the 22nd year for the Kansas State University Biology
REU site.  The program is hosted by the Ecological Genomics Institute,
Konza Prairie Biological Station, and the Division of Biology at Kansas
State University. The program covers costs of accommodations during the
summer. Participants will also receive a generous stipend, food allowance,
and travel allowance.

Participantsare selected for research potential based on an application
essay, application questionnaire, transcripts, and supporting letters
of recommendation.

Applicationdeadline is 15 February 2017.
