Student Research Opportunities

All UMBS courses involve research, typically in the form of a group or individual research project. You will gain first-hand research experience simply by taking our classes.

However, you may wish to pursue your own research independent of any scheduled UMBS spring or summer courses.

If you are an undergraduate student heading into your junior or senior year, you may apply for our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) beginning in mid-December, 2015 (deadline Monday, February 1, 2016). 

Undergraduate and graduate students may apply to pursue your own research projects at the Station. The undergraduate course EEB 400 and the graduate-level course EEB 700 are available if you wish to enroll for Independent Study credit and have a faculty advisor.

The Biological Station has many student research funding opportunities. The deadline to apply for most of these fellowships has passed for the 2015 research season (except the CLEAR Fellowship for Aquatic Research, which is April 3, 2015).  For 2016, fellowship applications will be due February 16.
