A small group of undergraduate students—usually about 10—comes to Indiana University each summer to engage in animal behavior research that involves neuroscience, cognitive science, and molecular approaches as well as traditional fieldwork and behavioral analysis. This work is made possible through the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Animal Behavior.
Funded by the National Science Foundation, the REU program has been running since 1990 and is one of the most successful undergraduate summer research programs in the country. It offers talented undergraduates a unique opportunity to conduct key research and gain valuable skills while exploring career opportunities in the sciences.
We hope to offer an in-person REU in Summer 2021, but whether we can do so will depend on the situation with COVID-19 and Indiana University policy. In the meantime, we are accepting applications with a deadline of February 15, 2021.
