Fall Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) 2020 Program at Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS)


The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) (Award number OCE-1757475), for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program to support internships for undergraduate student research at BIOS during fall 2020 (students will arrive August 30 and depart November 21).

An REU internship at BIOS is an ideal way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in oceanography and the marine and atmospheric sciences. REU interns will carry out an independent research project under the supervision of BIOS scientists and undertake training in scientific communication, research methods and ethics, and career development. You will give presentations about your research to your peers and colleagues at BIOS. Our program offers the opportunity to take part in various field excursions to learn about Bermuda's natural history, flora and fauna and all students will have the opportunity to participate in an oceanographic research cruise aboard our research vessel R/V Atlantic Explorer.

This life-changing program provides recipients with the opportunity to design and conduct intensive, hands-on research projects, under expert faculty supervision and mentorship, within several research areas including:

* Biology, chemistry, and physics of the open ocean
* Biology, physiology, and biochemistry of reef building corals and reef ecosystems
* Molecular biology of marine organisms
* Environmental chemistry of Bermuda's atmosphere and inshore waters
* Effects and consequences of global environmental change

Students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate study and have not graduated at the time of the program are eligible. Underrepresented groups and students attending colleges or universities with limited STEM research opportunities are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Applicants are ineligible if they have participated in a prior NSF-funded REU in Ocean Sciences. Successful candidates are advised to arrange for independent study credit through their home institutions.

Funding includes return air travel to Bermuda, campus accommodation and meals. Each successful REU applicant will also receive a competitive stipend. Medical and travel insurance are the responsibility of the student.

Please visit for additional information on the BIOS REU program and the online application form.

Completed online applications and supporting documents must be submitted by May 31.
