Looking for a fun and challenging research experience this summer? The
National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS)
is now taking applications for its eight-week long summer research
program for undergraduates (REU) interested in research at the interface
between mathematics and biology. The program takes place June 11 -
August 3, 2012 on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus.
Undergraduate majors in biology, math, and related fieldswill live on
campus and work in teams with UT professors, NIMBioS researchers, and
collaborators to conduct research. Among this year's research topics are
disease modeling, evolution of sexual imprinting, genome evolution, and
development of natural plant pesticides. Stipend and housing are
provided along with some funding for travel. Participants will also have
their registration covered to attend the 2012 Society of Mathematical
Biology annual meeting, July 25-28, in Knoxville.

*Application Deadline:  February 17, 2012*
