Paid Summer Internship in Marine Science

Forwarded message from CSU Monterey

We are now accepting applications for the 2023 CSUMB Ocean Science Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) summer program. Students in our REU can conduct research in the following areas (the list of research topics within each area is not exhaustive):

  • Marine Biology and Ecology (includes intertidal ecology, kelp forest ecology, marine landscape ecology, marine microbiology, population genetics, ecophysiology and biomechanics)
  • Ocean Engineering (includes ocean robotics, autonomous underwater vehicle design, computer programming, machine learning, oceanographic instrumentation development)
  • Oceanography(includes ocean current modeling, ocean-atmosphere interactions, ocean acidification and plankton ecology)
  • Marine Geology (includes deep sea canyon formation, coastal hydrology, seafloor mapping, coastal erosion and plate tectonics)

In addition to working with mentors at CSU Monterey Bay, students can also work with mentors at any of our Monterey Bay 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 $6,000 stipend in addition to support for research, room and board, and travel to and from Monterey Bay. Students also receive support to attend conferences to present the results of their research. The application portal will close on February 14, 2023 at 11:59 PM PST. Our 10-week summer program will run from June 4th to August 12th, 2023. Additional program details can be found on our homepage: https://csumb.edu/reu

We especially encourage applications from student groups historically underrepresented in the ocean sciences and from institutions where research opportunities are limited (Junior/Community Colleges, Tribal Colleges, HBCUs and HSIs). Preference is given to applicants who are rising juniors or seniors. This year we anticipate supporting up to 20 students.

Prospective applicants should contact us at our REU email address (reu@csumb.edu) with their questions. A flyer and trifold with additional program details are attached. If you have any questions, please let me know.
