Brooklyn College and the City University of New York invite applications for a new Research Experiences for Undergraduates program in Urban Ecology and the Environment that will run this summer between June 5 and August 17. BUEE offers an integrative summer research program aimed at developing early-career undergraduate students into mature and thoughtful environmental scientists. Authentic research experiences on human-coupled natural systems are complemented by an academic program aimed at developing practical experience in research design, scientific communication and community outreach. BUEE leverages the unique academic and research resources at Brooklyn, including a state-of-the-art Aquatic Research and Environmental Assessment Center and the recently-established Science and Resilience Institute at Jamaica Bay, focused on urban sustainability and resilience. Students are provided with a competitive stipend, housing and food allowances, and relocation credit for travel from outside the region. Applications from STEM-underrepresented students are especially encouraged.
More information on the program, including potential projects, can be found at buee.brooklyn.cuny.edu, or by contacting the program PI at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should be submitted online before April 1.
