|Description:||The Center for Great Lakes Studies of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the National Science Foundation Division of Ocean Sciences offer career development and experience in Marine and Freshwater Sciences through a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site program. Students continuing college enrollment in Fall 2006, particularly with majors pertinent to aquatic sciences (e.g., chemistry, biology, physics, geology, mathematics) and interest in water are encouraged to apply. Benefits include:
* Hands-on research in current fields of aquatic science
* Exposure to career options following college graduation
* Making contacts and networking in Ocean Sciences career paths
* Experience with oral presentation, poster design, and research papers
* A $3000 stipend plus travel and dormitory support
The Great Lakes are large enough to manifest ocean-scale physical, chemical, and biological processes. Research programs require the use of substantial vessels and often include Remotely-Operated Vehicle (ROV) or other advanced technologies. Exploitation of freshwater resources is becoming an increasingly critical topic in politics and environmentalism, with diverse career opportunities for those sufficiently versed in aquatic science and policy. In addition, Great Lakes research can serve as a fully-functional springboard to career paths in marine biology, chemistry, geology, and other fields of focused endeavor.
Scientists associated with the Center for Great Lakes Studies span a wide range of scientific disciplines. The host WATER Institute is a substantial contributor to University revenue through State and Federal research grants. You will be directly involved in cutting-edge investigations of large water bodies using modern equipment and concepts. This program may provide unparalleled insight into your future career possibilities.
