National Science Foundation REULocation: University of Virginia
Agency: University of Virginia
Due Date: February 20, 2018
Description: The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program at the Mountain Lake Biological Station is funded by the National Science Foundation and is designed to fully involve undergraduates in the research enterprise of first-rank scholars in ecology, behavior, evolution, and population biology. The program has allowed the station to form a community of undergraduate researchers within the already established community of scientists. We expect all of our undergraduate researchers to emerge as scientifically literate citizens. We also expect many REUs to pursue post-baccalaureate training and pursue careers as productive scientists. We achieve these goals by providing promising undergraduates with: (1) highly qualified mentors (2) formal seminars on the conduct of research and the development of professional skills and ethics, and (3) research experiences that guide a student through the planning, execution, analysis, interpretation, and presentation phases of a research project. Above all, we strive to make your REU experience rewarding and a lot of fun! The following two sections are aimed at students and mentors respectively. However, you will profit from reading the full document. Please also become familiar with the station’s web site mlbs.org. You will find current information on station life, what to bring, events, news, programs, databases, and other online resources.
