This NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program will support ten highly motivated and talented undergraduate students to conduct independent but guided research that focuses on Coastal Ocean Processes during an intensive 10-week program at the USC Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island, CA. The program will provide students with hands-on research experience, training in laboratory and field methodologies, introductory lectures and special seminars in oceanography and marine science, academic and career advisement, professional development workshops, group activities and field trips to explore Catalina Island’s unique ecosystems. Applications are due by Feb. 14, 2020.
You are invited to join us for our Undergraduate Research Poster Symposium featuring research on coastal ocean processes, subseafloor microbes and more by undergraduates of the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies Summer REU program and the Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations C4 and GGURE programs. Light refreshments will be served. Please send an email to Gwen Noda firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you plan to attend. See the flyer for more details.
