The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is in its fourth year as an NSF-funded REU Site – Integrated Studies in a Rapidly Warming Fishery Ecosystem. Students in this program have an opportunity to participate in field, lab, or computer-based research on the dynamics of the fish, plankton, and human communities in and around the Gulf of Maine.
We welcome applications from undergraduate students from a broad range of institutions and backgrounds including students from two- and four-year colleges and underserved communities (e.g., minorities, students with disabilities, first-generation college students, veterans).
The program includes 10 weeks of hands-on research experience at our waterfront location in Portland Maine, a $600/week stipend, housing (at the Maine College of Art in downtown Portland: https://www.meca.edu/student-life/residence-life/residence-halls/), meal allowances and travel support for 6 students. Online applications are open through February 15th. Decisions will be made by March 15th.
