Oregon State University is proud to announce the availability of paid research internships for 20 students during each summer. Ten students will be located at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) on the Pacific coast in Newport and another 10 located at the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) in Corvallis.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program offers students the unique opportunity to work on individual research projects, and participate in group field trips, seminars and science colloquia over a 10-week period at CEOAS and HMSC under the guidance of university and research agency scientists, who serve as mentors.

The Research Experience for Undergraduates program runs from June 16th to August 22nd, 2014 at both the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) in Newport and at the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences in Corvallis. Out of state travel, on-site housing at OSU or HMSC and a weekly stipend ($565) are provided.

HMSC offers a particularly broad range of undergraduate research opportunities and applications in marine and estuarine science. We welcome applications from students with backgrounds and interests in any of these areas, including biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, mathematics, computer science, or engineering majors.

If you want to apply what you've learned in the classroom to real world problems, then a research experience in marine and estuarine sciences may be right for you.

While students work independently with their research mentors, there are numerous opportunities to interact with other scientists and students at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport and in CEOAS and other departments on the Corvallis campus, through orientation, weekly seminars, group field trips, social events, and final project presentations. A list of potential mentors and project research areas appears below.

Eligibility: Currently enrolled undergraduates who are not graduating seniors may apply. Eligibility limited to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

REU interns receive a weekly stipend ($565), housing on-site, and round-trip transportation from their home area if needed. 

Initial review of applications: Monday, February 3, 2014, 5pm PST

Final Deadline for ALL applications: Friday, February 14, 2014 5pm PST.
