Greetings from Mote!
We are recruiting qualified students for our summer REU program.
You have supported this program in the past by helping us recruit or by submitting recommendations on behalf of students from your university or organization. We would appreciate your assistance again this year in making science students and colleagues at your institution aware of Mote Marine Laboratory’s 2012 Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program.
Each summer, Mote Marine Laboratory hosts a 10-week program focused on providing research experiences in estuarine science to 10 advanced undergraduate students. Students are paired with Mote scientists and develop and complete an independent research project related to their mentor’s research interests. Students gain experience in science communication by presenting the results of their independent project in a manuscript-style research paper and orally at a laboratory-wide poster session. Students attend research seminars and workshops on career skills in science and also have the opportunity to present their research findings at professional conferences.
Information about 2012 REU mentors and their programs, as well as the application procedures, are now posted on the REU web site: www.mote.org/reu
**All application materials are due on February 15, 2012**
