REU Opportunity Summer 2018: “Research Experience for Undergraduates in
Mathematics and Biology”

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Department of Biology
and Department of Mathematics and Statistics invite highly motivated
undergraduate students to apply to our NSF-sponsored Research Experience
for Undergraduates (REU) summer program.

Students will engage in one of multiple, co-mentored research projects at
the interface of mathematics and biology. While exposure to both
disciplines in desired, advanced expertise in both in not required because
you will work in interdisciplinary teams.

Topics range from the evolutionary ecology of disease, to social evolution
and the evolution of plant architecture. After a brief initial training
period starting May 14, the students work on the research until July 20,
2018 and receive a stipend of $5000. Travel support and shared university
housing will also be included.
