Research Experiences for Undergrads at Chicago Botanic Garden - Apply by Feb. 8!

This summer, the Chicago Botanic Garden and partner institutions will host
10 NSF-REU interns (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) conducting
research under the broad theme of PLANT BIOLOGY AND CONSERVATION, from
genetic to ecosystem levels of inquiry. Potential projects include work in
systematics, conservation biology, restoration ecology, biogeochemistry, and
related fields. Students will gain laboratory and field experience,
participate in professional development activities, help mentor high-school
student researchers, and enjoy a fun social environment.

Participation is restricted to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who will
be enrolled as undergraduates after summer 2015. Interns will receive a
stipend of $5,000 and room and board in downtown Chicago. Costs of travel to
and from Chicago will be covered. We encourage applications from students
who are members of groups underrepresented in the sciences and students who
have limited research opportunities at their home institutions. The
application deadline is February 8, 2015, and the 10-week program will run
from Mon. Jun 8 through Fri. Aug 14.
