NSF REU: Summer Research in Investigative Biotechnology at Western Kentucky University

Get laboratory experience in biotechnology and get paid. Accepted students will spend the summer at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky and be trained in research techniques, participate in exciting research (students can chose from over seventeen projects), and gain valuable presentation skills. Additionally, students will benefit from a series of workshops exploring ethics and preparing students to apply for and succeed in graduate school. Students will receive a stipend of $500 per week, free housing, meal and travel allowances, and lab supplies.

WKU will not be hosting the Biotech REU in Summer 2013. Please check back in 2014 for updates.
