REU opportunity in oceanography, fisheries ecology, and resource economics

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is launching an NSF-funded REU Site – ‘Integrated Studies in a Rapidly Warming Fishery Ecosystem’.  Students in this program will have an opportunity to participate in field, lab, or computer-based research on the dynamics of the fish, plankton, and human communities in and around the Gulf of Maine. We welcome applications from undergraduate students from a broad range of institutions and backgrounds including students from two- and four-year colleges and underserved communities (e.g., minorities, students with disabilities, first-generation college students, veterans). The program includes 10 weeks of hands-on research experience at our waterfront location in downtown Portland Maine, a $500/week stipend, housing, meal allowances and travel support for 6-8 students. For more information please visit:

Online applications are open through February 15th. Decisions will be made by March 15th.

Thank you for circulating this opportunity to your colleagues and students.
