Job Description

The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Systematics and Evolutionary Biology is funded by the National Science Foundation. This program brings approximately 8 students to the American Museum of Natural History each summer for a 10-week experience working with our curators, faculty, and post-doctoral fellows. Students from two-year and four-year colleges may apply. Research projects span diverse fields of comparative biology including paleontology, genomics, population biology, conservation biology, and phylogenetics and taxonomy. Students have access to the Museum’s immense natural history collections as well as state-of-the-art equipment for advanced imaging (CT scanner, SEM, TEM) and genomics (Sanger and pyrosequencing platforms). Students receive a $5000 traineeship stipend, as well as per diem costs for housing and meals, relocation expenses, and transportation subsidies. In addition to conducting original research projects throughout the summer, students also participate in formal instruction in systematics and evolution and receive training in ethics, networking, communication and other career-building skills.
