The Biochemistry, Cellular, and Molecular Biology Department at The University of Tennessee-Knoxville will once again offer a special summer program for undergraduates interested in research. The aim of this Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is to provide hands-on research opportunities for undergraduate students majoring in the sciences, with an introduction to cutting-edge research in the broad area of “Sensing and Signaling”. The team of REU investigators represents a multidisciplinary ensemble of Cell Biologists, Geneticists, Biochemists, and Biophysicists who are taking modern approaches to the analysis of how signals are perceived and transduced in myriad biological systems.
This opportunity is available to Sophomore and Junior undergraduate science majors, with preference for Juniors. REU Fellowships will be awarded to qualified students on a competitive basis. Each Fellowship will include a $5,000 stipend as well as an allowance for cost of living, travel, and research supplies. Please visit the program website for more information on this research opportunity and how to apply. The deadline to submit application is March 30, 2012.
