The UNLV REU Site: Mechanisms of Evolution is accepting applications for summer 2016.
Undergraduate projects funded by the REU Site: Mechanisms of Evolution focus on biological processes, such as mutation, genetic drift, migration, non-random mating and natural selection that drive heritable change. The inspiration for this proposal is the celebrated essay, Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution by Theodosius Dobzansky.
Research projects are available in the following disciplines: bioinformatics, field ecology, systematics, molecular biology and physiology
Travel award and double occupancy housing is provided
Application deadline: Friday March 4, 2016
Students from underrepresented groups and from academic institutions with limited research opportunities, including two-year colleges, are strongly encouraged to apply.
