FULLY FUNDED MARINE, OCEANOGRAPHIC AND ATMOSPHERIC UNDERGRADUATE INTERNSHIPS
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program http://www.bios.edu/education/reu to support internships for undergraduate student research at BIOS during fall 2019 (students will arrive August 25 and depart November 16).
An REU internship at BIOS is an ideal way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in oceanography and the marine and atmospheric sciences. REU interns will carry out an independent research project under the expert supervision of BIOS scientists and undertake training in scientific communication, research methods and ethics, and career development. You will give presentations about your research to your peers and colleagues at BIOS. Our program offers the opportunity to take part in various field excursions to learn about Bermuda’s natural history, and all students will have the opportunity to participate in an oceanographic research cruise aboard our research vessel R/V Atlantic Explorer.
This program provides recipients with the opportunity to design and conduct intensive, hands-on research projects - under faculty supervision and mentorship, within several research areas including:
Biology, chemistry, and physics of the open ocean
Biology, physiology, and biochemistry of reef building corals and reef ecosystems
Molecular biology of marine organisms
Environmental chemistry of Bermuda's atmosphere and inshore waters
Effects and consequences of global environmental change
Funding includes return air travel to Bermuda, campus accommodation and meals. Each successful REU applicant will also receive a competitive stipend. Medical/travel insurance is the responsibility of the student.
