The Chicago Center for Systems Biology is offering its 6th REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) program this summer. The Center seeks qualified undergraduates for 2014 REU fellowships. Stipends are $4,000 for ten-week projects. They will be awarded on a competitive basis based on academic excellence, motivation, scientific potential, compatibility of personal interests, and long-term career goals aligned with research programs of the CCSB. Applicants with computational science backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. All participants must be U.S. citizens (or permanent residents) and be enrolled in (but not yet graduated from) an accredited undergraduate college degree program with a concentration in a biological science field. Please post and/or share the attached announcement and application.
If selected, students will be matched with a research mentor. During the program participants will be invited to lab meetings and seminars. In addition, they will have access to libraries, athletic facilities, and University-sponsored events. At the conclusion of the summer projects, students will produce a summary report and present their findings at an REU Symposium in the Gordon Center for Integrative Science at the University of Chicago.
The deadline for receipt of CCSB REU application materials is February 10, 2014.
