Agency: The University of Texas at El Paso
Due Date: February 26, 2018
Description: The program will provide a cohort of summer participants with a high quality experience that combines education and novel research projects utilizing the 40,000 acre Indio Mountain Research Station and surrounding Chihuahuan Desert as well as the state-of-the-art facilities at UTEP. Participants will also receive training in bioethics, one-on-one and group mentoring, and training in other relevant professional skills (e.g. writing and oral presentations). Each participant will be guided directly by different members of the CDB faculty team, but they will participate in a number of activities that will keep them as a cooperative summer cohort that shares research interests in biodiversity studies and thus will benefit by understanding each other's work and contributing to each other’s growth as practicing scientists. The major emphasis of this program is developing skills for performing independent and collaborative research. Participants will be integrated into the research groups of individual faculty mentors. However, given that the program has a unifying theme, participants will be sharing common research interests as well as goals for academic and professional development. Consequently, participants will meet as a group for discussions, training, formal presentations, workshops and seminars. At the end of the program, students will present the results of their summer’s efforts at a symposium.
