Here you will find a collection of research related opportunities at and for the College of Biological Sciences.

University of Georgia Population Biology of Infectious Diseases Summer REU

The Population Biology of Infectious Diseases REU Site at the University of Georgia is a nine-week NSF-funded program which provides students from across the country with research experiences at the intersections of quantitative and experimental studies in infectious disease biology.

University of Georgia Summer Undergraduate Biology Education Research Program

The University of Georgia recently announced the fifth year of its Undergraduate Biology Education Research (UBER) REU site program. UBER is a a nine-week, NSF-funded program which involves undergraduates in designing and conducting research on biology teaching and learning with mentorship from faculty in UGA’s Division of Biological Sciences and College of Education.

Undergraduate Research Opportunity in the Fixen Lab

The Fixen lab is working to understand how a photosynthetic bacterium works and how we can get it to work for us by producing energy rich compounds. Students will learn a variety of lab techniques under the supervision of the lab manager and PI and would have the opportunity to take on an independent research project after the first semester. Students will gain experience in molecular biology approaches such as cloning and qPCR and in growing microorganisms using sterile technique under anaerobic conditions. Volunteer, directed research, and UROP options are possible. 

Spots Open in Coral Reef Ecology Course 2017-18

There are 3 spots left on the Winter-Break course, "Coral Reef Ecology" in the field. Specifically, they travel to Roatan, in the Honduran Bay Islands, and spend 9 days diving, becoming Reef-Check certified "Eco Divers," conducting a bit of research, and learning about various underwater habitats. It's an amazing course!

Dates this year are 12/30/17 - 1/8/18

They stay at Anthony's Key, which is fabulous, and have unlimited shore diving, plus two or more boat dives each day, weather permitting.

UNOLS Great Lakes Chief Scientist Training Cruises

New to planning shipboard field work?  Wondering how to request research vessel time, or specific pieces of equipment? Need samples or data to initiate a research project? If so, take part in the “2017 UNOLS Great Lakes Chief Scientist Training Cruise.” This cruise and pre-cruise information workshop will instruct early career marine scientists (including Ph.D. students, post docs and first or second year faculty members) on how to effectively plan for, acquire, and utilize time at sea for multi-disciplinary research and education.
