REU program at Chicago Field Museum Summer 2014

The Field Museum REU program will train a cohort of at least eight students in biodiversity-related research in a 10-week summer program. Each participant will undertake an independent research project supervised by a museum scientist in a discipline such as taxonomy and systematics, phylo/ biogeography, paleontology, molecular phylogenetics, or conservation.

REU student participants receive a stipend of $4,500 for the 10-week program and additional $2,500 subsistence and $250 travel allowance. There is also housing assistance coordinated with the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The program is competitive, but museum administrators will be keeping an eye out for Elon applications.

This is what they look for:

·         Relevant coursework
·         Prior research experience
·         At least a 3.0 GPA
·         Desire to pursue a research career
