Description
The Disturbance Ecology of Central Appalachia summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is a full-time (40 hrs/wk for 10 weeks), paid internship program hosted by Eastern Kentucky University. Student interns will work closely with faculty and professional mentors to study anthropogenic disturbance, while immersed in the landscape of Appalachia. Students will live on campus at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, KY, and will spend large parts of the summer at the Lilley Cornett Woods old-growth forest ecosystem. Research projects will address specific questions within one of four broad areas: mammal ecology, forest ecology, stream ecology, and wetlands.
Qualifications
The EKU Disturbance Ecology in Central Appalachia summer research program is open to current undergraduates from all institutions. Students must be currently enrolled in a 2-year or 4-year school. Students graduating before August 2017 will not be eligible. Participants must be US Citizens, US Nationals, or permanent residents. We strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups in the sciences, first-generation college students, students that attend colleges with limited research opportunities (small liberal arts and community colleges), students with physical disabilities, and US military veterans. Participants must be able to show proof of health insurance during the project period.
