  • From: Peter Sehoon Kim Date: Tue, Jan 19, 2010 at 1:50 PM Subject: Summer REU Program: Mathematical Biology, University of Utah

    Summer REU Program in Mathematical Biology, University of Utah

    Topic: Mathematical Biology: Ants, epidemics, and the immune system Dates of program: Monday, June 14 to Friday, July 2, 2010 Location: Mathematics Department, University of Utah, Salt Lake City

    Research topics: How do colonies of Ants make decisions in uncertain world? Why do epidemics burn out instead of killing everybody? How does the Immune system use limited or deceptive information and destroy invaders and avoid self-destruction? This summer we plan to use equations and algorithms to understand complex biological systems constructed from many simple parts.

    Aims: The aim of this 3-week program is to provide undergraduates with an introduction to the excitement of Mathematical Biology. No prior experience in this field is required. We are targeting rising juniors or seniors.

    Eligibility: US citizen or permanent resident who is currently registered in an accredited undergraduate program.  Travel support, on-campus housing, and stipend funds are available.

    To apply please send the following to letter of recommendation 2.copy of college transcript (original/certified documents are not required) page statement of interest Application Deadline: March 15, 2010?

  • From: Catherine Crawley Date: Thu, 21 Jan 2010 11:31:11 -0500 Subject: Call for Applications: NIMBioS REU/REV Summer Program

    The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is now taking applications for an 8-week long summer research program for undergraduates (REU) and veterinary students (REV) interested in work at the interface between biology and mathematics. The program will take place June 7- July 30, 2010. Undergraduate majors in biology, math, and related fields will live and work in teams with UTK faculty. Disease modeling, population dynamics, biodiversity and climate change are among this year?s research topics. Some teams will include veterinary students or high school teachers. Stipend and housing is provided along with some funding for travel support.
