Dear List Members,


Please forward the following announcement to promising undergraduates
majoring in ocean science and related STEM fields of study.


Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) with CCMI:
Coral Reef Biodiversity and Resilience at the Little Cayman Research Centre

20th June to 14th August 2015 


The Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) invites undergraduate students
interested in ocean sciences to apply to the Research Experience for
Undergraduates (REU) program in Coral Reef Biodiversity and Resilience on
Little Cayman. CCMI has support from the National Science Foundation for
eight students, who will each be paired with a research mentor for an 8 week
experience living and working at our Little Cayman Research Centre (LCRC).
REU participants, under the guidance of their mentors, will each design,
conduct, and communicate a research project in an effort to positively
contribute to the conservation and management of reefs by advancing our
knowledge on the processes that drive coral reef resilience to disturbances
on multiple spatial and temporal scales.   In addition to conducting their
own research, REU participants will attend workshops on career skills in
science, participate in excursions on and around Little Cayman, and interact
with local conservation professionals.  For more information, please visit
the REU in Little Cayman website at

Applications are due 15 March 2015.
