While we here at UW Marine Bio love to talk about Friday Harbor Labs, there are some fantastic opportunities for our students with our neighbor to the South. The Oregon Institute of Marine Biology (OIMB) is the marine field station for the University of Oregon. See the attached image for their summer 2018 course flyer. If this is not visible, you can find out more about their courses at: http://oimb.uoregon.edu/academics/summer/.
The Oregon Institute of Marine Biology’s REU program: “Exploration of Marine Biology on the Oregon Coast” (EMBOC) will be accepting 10 students, five from 2-year colleges and five from 4-year colleges, to conduct research this summer (June 17 – August 18, 2018) at the University of Oregon’s marine lab. REU students will develop individual marine research projects in one of our eight faculties’ labs and participate in weekly seminars, professional development workshops, and social activities from exploring local marine habitats like rocky shores and sand dunes to touring other institutions that specialize in marine science.
The application period is from December 15, 2017-February 15, 2018.
Please pass on word of the EMBOC program to any interested undergraduates.
