Georgia Tech. will be hosting 10 undergraduate researchers this summer focused in Aquatic Chemical Ecology. Aquatic Chemical Ecology (ACE) at Georgia Tech is a summer undergraduate research program that gives students the opportunity to perform research with our faculty in the Schools of Biology, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.
The research theme of Aquatic Chemical Ecology is broadly interpreted. There are 3 core areas of research for students to choose from: Biological and geochemical transformations of chemicals in aquatic ecosystems; Sensory biology and ecology of aquatic chemical communication; Ecological roles and consequences of chemicals in aquatic environments. This program is an excellent choice for undergraduates majoring in any field of biology, chemistry, earth/ocean science, civil engineering, environmental engineering, chemical engineering, and related bioengineering areas who want to apply their classroom learning to an interdisciplinary research environment to solve complex scientific problems and learn about the importance of chemically-mediated processes.
The application deadline is February 15, 2013. The full-time, 10-week program will start May 20 and run until July 26. Participants will receive a stipend of $5000 plus accommodations with kitchen facilities in university housing, and help with travel expenses to and from Atlanta.
