Western Kentucky University seeks talented science students to participate in its summer
National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in
investigative biotechnology. We hope that you will encourage interested students to apply.
Our preference is for rising juniors and seniors (younger students with research experience
will be considered), who have completed core courses in the science curriculum at their home
institutions and have demonstrated a curiosity and passion for science. We especially
encourage applications from students who are members of groups underrepresented in graduate
education in the biological sciences.
Thirteen faculty members in Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics and Computer Science
will serve as mentors to accepted students. These students will gain much.
Academically, students will be trained in research techniques, participate
in exciting research (students can chose from over nineteen projects), and
gain valuable presentation skills. Additionally, students will benefit from
a series of workshops exploring ethics and preparing students to apply for
and succeed in graduate school. Practically, students will receive a stipend
of $480 per week, free housing, meal and travel allowances, and lab supplies.
Students can find more information and application
instructions at http://www.wku.edu/biotechreu.
Applications must be postmarked by Friday, February 4, 2011.
If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact
Dr. Shivendra Sahi (firstname.lastname@example.org),
Dr. Rodney King (email@example.com), or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org).
