Mote Marine Laboratory Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates:
In summer of 2013, Mote Marine Laboratory will host a 10-week, National Science Foundation-funded program
focused on providing research experiences in estuarine science to 10 undergraduate students. Students will be paired with Mote scientists and conduct research on major threats to estuaries such as aquatic pollution, natural toxins, habitat alteration, and coral reef decline. Students will 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 presentation. Students will also attend research seminars, workshops on career skills in science, and may have the opportunity to present their research findings at professional conferences.
To be eligible for the Mote REU Program, students must be:
• U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its territories
