Aquatic Chemical Ecology Research at Georgia Tech

Posted by: Date: January 13, 2017 In:

Georgia Tech will be hosting 10 undergraduate researchers this summer at Georgia Tech in their REU program focused in Aquatic Chemical Ecology. The program website includes program details, contact information, and instructions for application.  The application deadline is February 15, 2017.  The full-time, 10-week program will start May 22 and run until July 28.  Participants will receive a stipend of $5000 plus accommodations with kitchen facilities in university housing, and help with travel expenses to and from Atlanta.

The research theme of Aquatic Chemical Ecology is broadly interpreted with three core areas of research for students to choose from: Biological and geochemical transformations of chemicals in aquatic ecosystems; Sensory biology and ecology of aquatic chemical communication; Ecological roles and consequences of chemicals in aquatic environments.  This program is an excellent choice for undergraduates majoring in any field of biology, chemistry, earth/ocean science, civil engineering, environmental engineering, chemical engineering, and related bioengineering areas who want to apply their classroom learning to an interdisciplinary research environment to solve complex scientific problems and learn about the importance of chemically-mediated processes.
