Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
The University of Kentucky is pleased to announce that in the summer of 2014, we will again host a 10-week summer program for undergraduate research on suburban ecology and invasive species, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
Ten students will be recruited from across the United States, and matched to faculty mentors who are conducting research on a wide variety of invasive species (e.g. house sparrows, Japanese honeysuckle) over a range of environments along an urban to rural gradient, from backyards to farms.
Students will be exposed to the full spectrum of a research project, from the underlying ecological theory, the formulation of hypotheses, the design of experiments, the analyses of data, and the write up for publication.
