NIMBioS Summer Research Experience

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) is now taking applications for its Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates and Teachers (SRE). The program will be held June 5 – July 28, 2017, on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus. Undergraduate majors in biology, math, and related fields, as well as high school teachers in biology and mathematics, will live on campus and work in teams with UT professors, NIMBioS researchers, and collaborators to conduct research. This year’s research projects include modeling bird mating patterns, seasonality in multi-host systems, La Crosse encephalitis spread, immune system response in host-virus conflict, and a project to develop computer games for teaching biology. Stipend and housing are provided along with some funding for travel.

Application Deadline:  February 15, 2017
