The Chicago Center for Systems Biology (CCSB) and the Conte Center for
Computational Neuropsychiatric Genomics are offering two REU (Research
Experiences for Undergraduates) programs this summer.  Both Centers seek
qualified undergraduates for 2013 REU fellowships.  Stipends are $4,000
for ten-week projects.  They will be awarded on a competitive basis based
on academic excellence, motivation, scientific potential, compatibility of
personal interests, and long-term career goals aligned with research
programs of the CCSB and Conte Center.  Applicants with computational
science backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.  All participants
must be U.S. citizens (or permanent residents) and enrolled in (but not
yet graduated from) an accredited undergraduate college degree program
with a concentration in a biological science field. Please post and/or
share the attached announcements and applications.
If selected, students will be matched with a research mentor. During the
program participants will be invited to lab meetings and seminars.  In
addition, they will have access to libraries, athletic facilities, and
University-sponsored events.  At the conclusion of summer projects,
students will produce a summary report and present their findings at a REU
Symposium in the Gordon Center for Integrative Science at the University
of Chicago.

More information about both programs is available at

The deadline for receipt of REU application materials is February 18,
2013.  Students can apply to one or both programs. Send via mail or email
