    The Disturbance Ecology of Central Appalachia summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is a full-time (40 hrs/wk for 10 weeks), paid internship program hosted by Eastern Kentucky University. Student interns will work closely with faculty and professional mentors to study anthropogenic disturbance and climate change, while immersed in the landscape of Appalachia. Students will live on campus at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, KY, and will spend large parts of the summer at field stations including the Lilley Cornett Woods old-growth forest ecosystem. Research projects will address specific questions related to avian ecology, forest ecology, pollinators, amphibian, snake, and mammal bird biology, pollinators, and wetland science. Benefits include a $6,000 stipend, housing, travel to the site, research support, and professional development training.

    The program is open to current undergraduates from all institutions. Students graduating before August 2020 will not be eligible. Participants must be US Citizens, US Nationals, or permanent residents. We strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups in the sciences, first-generation college students, students that attend colleges with limited research opportunities (small liberal arts and community colleges), financially disadvantaged students, students with physical disabilities, and US military veterans. The deadline for applications is Feb 15, 2020, but we encourage earlier submissions. Additional information and a link to the online application can be found at https://bioreu.eku.edu.  Questions and letters of reference should be directed to bioreu@eku.edu.
