Description

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at the Intersection of Mathematics and Biology The Florida Tech Research Experience for Undergraduates program (REU) is funded by the National Science Foundation and offers the opportunity for motivated undergraduates to learn and explore the interesting field of Mathematical Biology. This REU provides research experience for students interested in Biology, Mathematics, or Computer Science. Students will work in teams supported by Math and Biology faculty on real research projects. The 2015 application is open now (follow link above)! The program starts on May 18th and runs through July 24th at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL. The application deadline is March 15, 2015. *You can still be considered if you cannot make these exact dates. Please indicated on your application when you will be able to start, or when you must finish. We recognize that different Universities have different starting and ending dates. Undergraduates who qualify for the REU Program receive a competitive stipend, assistance with travel expenses, and housing. Students must be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency to qualify for NSF funding. Students from groups under-represented in the sciences (African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders), first generation college students, women and non-traditional students are encouraged to apply. Students will work in teams of two (one biologist, one mathematician) with faculty supervisors from both the Department of Biological Sciences and Department of Mathematics. They will work together on a research project that incorporates mathematics and biology and, in the process, gain experience in theoretical mathematics and working in the biology laboratory. Weekly lab meetings will allow for discussion of scientific issues related directly to the projects but also for guidance on other issues of importance, such as:
