SUMMER RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS IN BIOLOGY

The Biology Department at Bradley University is offering undergraduate
students the opportunity to conduct independent research during the summer
of 2000.  Selected students will participate in a 10-week research program
running from May 30 through August 4, 2000.  The program is designed to
integrate student research opportunities and education in research
methodologies through hands-on experimentation, weekly seminars and
discussions, and through a final participant research symposium.  Each
student will receive a stipend of $2,500, money for travel to the Bradley
University campus in Peoria, Illinois (if needed), and free housing provided
on campus.  

The Biology Department offers faculty expertise in a wide array of
interesting topics:

R. Conley (Biology)       - neuroethology
S. Fan (Biology)          - immunology
J. Gehring (Biology)      - plant evolutionary biology
B. Kurtz (Biology)        - human genetics
K. McConnaughay (Biology) - plant ecology
K. Roos (Physics)         - computer modeling of biological systems
E. Stabenau (Biology)     - comparative animal physiology
