Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates at Kansas State

Forwarded from Prof. Theodore Morgan, Kansas State University:
ANNOUNCING: Summer 2012 REU Opportunities in The Ecology and Evolution of Changing Environments at Kansas State University
Kansas State University invites applicants for a 10-week REU Summer Program. The focus of the program is on the mechanistic understanding of ecological and evolutionary responses to short- and long-term responses to changing environments. Research projects will address biological patterns observed in changing environments by examining underlying genetic, developmental, physiological, or ecological mechanisms.
The program is hosted by the Ecological Genomics Institute, The Konza Prairie Biological Station, and the Division of Biology at K-State. Over 30 faculty from the Division of Biology and Departments of Entomology, Geography, and Plant Pathology, will serve as potential mentors. Participants will learn modern approaches in ecology and evolutionary biology, attend professional development seminars, travel to important ecological sites and genomic centers in Kansas and Missouri, and have two opportunities to present their research. The program covers costs of accommodations and meals. Participants will also receive a generous 10-week stipend.
The deadline for applications is the 1st of March 2012.
More information is available by visiting http://www.ksu.edu/reu or by contacting the PIs (Dr. Bruce A. Snyder and Dr. Theodore J. Morgan) at biologyreu@ksu.edu.
