Thanks to Frank Stewart ’00 for sharing this opportunity: Georgia Tech will be hosting 10 undergraduate researchers this summer in their REU program focused on Aquatic Chemical Ecology (ACE).
Aquatic Chemical Ecology (ACE) at Georgia Tech is a summer research program supported by the National Science Foundation REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program. ACE at Georgia Tech gives you the opportunity to perform exciting research with our faculty in the schools of Biological Sciences, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. You’ll participate in research with one or more of our faculty, learn about careers in science and engineering, and see how scientists blend knowledge and skills from physics, chemistry and biology to investigate some of the most challenging problems in environmental sciences. We encourage applications from undergraduate students who are citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., especially attending universities other than Georgia Tech. The following three areas comprise the research activities covered by faculty in the Aquatic Chemical Ecology program:
- Area 1. Biological and geochemical transformations of chemicals in aquatic ecosystems.
- Area 2. Sensory biology and ecology of aquatic chemical communication.
- Area 3. Ecological roles and consequences of chemicals in aquatic environments.
The application deadline is February 15, 2018. This is a full-time, 10-week program that starts May 21 and runs through July 27. Participants receive a $5000 stipend plus accommodations.
This program is perfect for undergraduates majoring in any field of biology, chemistry, earth/ocean science, civil engineering, environmental engineering, chemical engineering, and related bioengineering.

MiddView Intern: The MiddView Interns are integral members of our MiddView Steering Committee and serve as critical links between student leaders, staff, faculty, new students (first-years, transfers, and exchanges), families, and the Middlebury College community. They are ambassadors of the College and the faces and voices of MiddView. Key responsibilities include developing a vision and schedule for MiddView 2018, communicating with new students and their families, managing the MiddView website, social media, and other communications, planning and assisting with events, managing complex logistics, and training and supervising other student staff. These positions offer employment from March through September 2018. MiddView Interns are expected to work 4-8 hours per week during the academic year and then transition to 37.5 hours per week during the summer (with over-time virtually assured during the week of MiddView).
MiddView Trips Intern: MiddView Trips Interns serve as critical members of the College’s MiddView planning team. They help to design and coordinate all aspects of the MiddView trips; Middlebury’s three day, two-night off-campus adventure that explores Vermont’s cultural, community or outdoor landscapes, providing small-group connections amongst first-year students to ease their transition to college. There are three positions available. Each intern will work on one kind of trip topic: Wilderness trips, Vermont Explorations trips, or Community Engagement trips. All three interns should expect a lot of collaboration between trip types.
