Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) internships at Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) are a great way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in the marine and atmospheric sciences.

In 2019, REU students will arrive at BIOS on August 25 and depart on November 16.

BIOS has National Science Foundation REU funding to support eight undergraduate student researchers at BIOS during the fall semester. Students will conduct independent projects under faculty and staff supervision within several research areas including:

  • Biology, chemistry and physics of the open ocean
  • Biology, physiology and biochemistry of reef building corals and reef ecosystems
  • Molecular biology of marine organisms
  • Environmental chemistry of Bermuda’s atmosphere and inshore waters
  • Effects and consequences of global environmental change

Eligibility and Terms of Internship:

  • Students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate study and have not graduated at the time of the program
  • Underrepresented groups and students attending colleges or universities with limited STEM research opportunities
  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  • Applicants are ineligible if they have participated in a prior NSF-funded REU in Ocean Sciences
  • Successful candidates are advised to arrange for independent study credit through their home institutions
  • Return airfare, campus accommodation, meals and a competitive stipend are covered by the BIOS REU program; medical/travel insurance is the responsibility of the student

Application Deadline: May 31, 2019
