Description: Miami University’s REU Site, focused on Ecology in Human-Dominated Landscapes, supports and prepares students in STEM to address critical research questions of the Anthropocene. This REU experience will prepare participants in all aspects of scientific research; build professional skills and understanding of how professional training, environmental ethics, and societal outcomes are linked; and expose REU participants to the ways science and ethics can lead to conservation solutions through hands-on service learning. Participants will conduct an independent research project with mentors in collaborative research clusters, and will participate in a variety of enrichment activities that address professional skills, environmental ethics, and service. All components of the program integrate the theme of ecology in human-dominated landscapes. This collaborative research experience is designed to address global issues that will empower some of our nation’s brightest students with the confidence and skills that allow them to solve socially and ecologically complex challenges. This will be a 10-week research experience in which students will receive both room and food allowances while staying at Miami University. This is a paid experience! Students will receive a $6000 stipend. Applications are now open, and applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all positions are filled.
