Earth Science Summer Research Opportunities at the University of Arizona

“Biosphere 2 Earth Systems Research for Environmental Solutions” (biosphere2.org/education/research-experiences-for-undergraduates) is a 10-week summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Students participate in a variety of activities that will help them pursue a career in environmental sciences. They conduct their own research with a faculty mentor, interact with other participants and scientists, and present research findings in a formal poster symposium setting.
