REU in Aquatic Chemical Ecology at Georgia Tech
NSF-Sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates in Aquatic Chemical
Ecology at Georgia Tech

Aquatic Chemical Ecology (ACE) at Georgia Tech is a summer undergraduate
research program supported by the National Science Foundation. ACE at
Georgia Tech gives you the opportunity to perform exciting research with our
faculty in the Schools of Biology, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Chemistry &
Biochemistry, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Chemical & Biomolecular
Engineering. You'll participate in research with one or more of our faculty,
learn about careers in science and engineering, and see how scientists blend
knowledge and skills from physics, chemistry, biology and related
disciplines to investigate some of the most challenging problems in
environmental sciences. Our REU program is also a great way to check out
research as a career before committing to graduate school, and for building
relationships that will help you with future career decisions.

Our program website is http://www.biology.gatech.edu/undergraduate-program/reu/
including program details, application process, and contact information.

The following three areas comprise the research activities covered by
faculty in the Aquatic Chemical Ecology program:

Area 1. Biological and geochemical transformations of chemicals in aquatic
Area 2. Sensory biology and ecology of aquatic chemical communication.
Area 3. Ecological roles and consequences of chemicals in aquatic environments.

The application deadline is February 15, 2014. The full-time, 10-week
program will start May 18th until July 25th. Participants will receive a
stipend of $5000 plus accommodations with kitchen facilities in university
housing, and help with travel expenses to and from Atlanta. There will also
be numerous social activities.

Students can go to our website to get more information and to apply. Any
U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is currently enrolled in an
undergraduate degree program is eligible, unless they have already been part
of an NSF-REU program in Ocean Sciences or unless they will graduate before
this summer. We are particularly interested in recruiting minority students
and those who come from non-PhD granting institutions.
