REU SITE WILL EMPHASIZE

Interdisciplinary training with a structured program of multi-level mentoring, introducing undergraduates to team-oriented research built around integration of sensory biology (smell, hearing, vision, etc.), behavior, ecology and evolution. Students will join active lab groups for the summer and conduct cutting edge research over a broad spectrum of topics in sensory ecology. An educational program will develop student research and professional skills and prepare them for graduate school or careers. Presentation of research results will be emphasized in a mini-symposium, and opportunities for publication may be possible.
