An REU internship at BIOS is a great way for U.S. undergraduate students to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in science.

BIOS has National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) funding to support nine undergraduate student researchers at BIOS during the fall semester. Students will conduct individual research projects in a collaborative team environment under the expert mentorship of BIOS faculty and staff.

Research Themes

The 2023 REU research projects are based around the following broad research themes:

  • Research Theme 1 - Coral Reef Function and Resilience
  • Research Theme 2 - Planktonic Life: Size, Abundance and Community Structure
  • Research Theme 3 - Marine Microbial Oceanography

Throughout the semester, REU students will give presentations that outline their research topic, methods, and results, including a final presentation to BIOS faculty, staff, and visiting students. REU students will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of field excursions to learn about Bermuda's natural history, flora and fauna as well as workshops and seminars given by BIOS faculty.
