Subject: NSF Ocean Science REU at California State University, Monterey Bay

This message is sent courtesy of Maryland Sea Grant.

Please share with your undergraduate students an opportunity to apply for a
new REU program in Ocean Sciences. Students in this new program can choose to
conduct Ocean Science research in Monterey Bay in the following areas (the
list of research topics within each area is not exhaustive):

Marine Biology and Ecology (includes population ecology, kelp forest ecology,
marine landscape ecology, marine microbiology, population genetics,
ecophysiology and biomechanics)

Ocean Engineering (includes ocean robotics, autonomous underwater vehicle
design, artificial intelligence, computer programming, scientific
instrumentation development)

Oceanography (includes ocean current modeling, deep sea population ecology,
ocean acidification, trace metal analysis and plankton ecology)

Marine Geology (includes deep sea canyon formation, coastal hydrology,
seafloor mapping, hydrothermal vent dynamics, coastal erosion, plate
tectonics and marine biogeochemistry)

In addition to electing to work with mentors at CSU Monterey Bay students can
also elect to work with mentors at our Monterey Bay area REU partner
institutions. These include:

Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve
Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
Moss Landing Marine Labs
Naval Postgraduate School

Students will be provided with a stipend in addition to support for travel,
room and board. Students will also receive post REU support to attend
conferences and support in applying to subsequent REU programs or graduate
programs. The application portal for the program will open this Friday,
February 14th and close on March 14th. The summer program will run from June
9th to August 15th.   For more information about the program, check out our

We especially encourage applications from student groups historically
underrepresented in the Ocean Sciences and students from institutions where
research opportunities are limited (Junior/Community Colleges, Tribal
Colleges, HBCUs and HSIs).
