Summer research internship in human impacts on Lake Champlain
The University of Vermont has a new 10-week NSF-REU summer internship for students interested in the ecological and socioeconomic impacts of habitat fragmentation, eutrophication, and invasive species on the Lake Champlain ecosystem. The experience is open to students who are rising freshmen through seniors; those from college and universities with limited research opportunities and underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Participants will receive a $5000 stipend, free housing, food stipend, and travel funds. Participants will take part in a "Think Like a Scientist" program, weekly journal club, weekly career seminars, conduct independent research, and present their results.
