|Description:||Aquatic Chemical Ecology (ACE) at Georgia Tech is a summer undergraduate research program supported by the National Science Foundation. ACE at Georgia Tech gives students the opportunity to perform exciting research with our faculty in the Schools of Biology, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. You'll participate in research with one or more of our faculty, learn about careers in science and engineering, and see how scientists blend knowledge and skills from physics, chemistry, biology and related disciplines to investigate some of the most challenging problems in environmental sciences. Our REU program is also a great way to check out research as a career before committing to graduate school, and for building relationships that will help you with future career decisions. Participants will receive a stipend of $5000 plus accommodations with kitchen facilities in university housing, and help with travel expenses to and from Atlanta.

including program details, application process, and contact information. Any U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program is eligible, unless they have already been part of an NSF-REU program in Ocean Sciences or unless they will graduate before this summer.
|Additional Information:||The following three areas comprise the research activities covered by faculty in the Aquatic Chemical Ecology program:
Area 1. Biological and geochemical transformations of chemicals in aquatic ecosystems.
Area 2. Sensory biology and ecology of aquatic chemical communication.
Area 3. Ecological roles and consequences of chemicals in aquatic environments.
