Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Switchgrass biology (UT Austin, TX, USA)

Dr. Tom Juenger's research group is currently seeking undergraduates interested in conducting research in Switchgrass biology. We are seeking undergraduate applicants for the The University of Texas at Austin Switchgrass Summer Research Program. This program is an opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in mentored independent research on the biology of Switchgrass. The program is funded through the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program and is associated with our ongoing interdisciplinary work on the ecology, physiology, and genomic responses of switchgrass to future climate change.
Summer students will be immersed in research and learn basic and
applied biology through active participation. Working as part of our
research team, they will contribute to group research projects, design
short research projects, and present their work in an end-of-summer
student symposium.

Who Should Apply?
Undergraduates in the second or third year. Each REU position is
supported for ten weeks, with a stipend of $4,500. The program runs
from the first week in June until the first week of August 2013.
Students will be housed in a UT dormitory, and the costs of the
dormitory and meal plan are included in the program. Some funds will
be available to help defray the cost of traveling to Austin.

The application deadline is February 15, 2015. Applicants should
submit a cover letter describing experience, interests and future
career plans, along with a copy of their transcripts. Applicants
should also ensure that two letters of recommendation are submitted on
their behalf. Only applications that are complete will be considered.
If acknowledgement of receipt is required, please request this in the
application. Applications and requests for further information should
be directed to:
