Kent State University and The Holden Arboretum invite applicants for a 10-week summer research training program. Students will conduct research with faculty mentors on terrestrial-aquatic linkages in urban-impacted ecosystems. A wide variety of potential topics may be studied; examples include effects of acid rain or land use change, nutrient cycling, plant-soil interactions, hydrology, and stream invertebrates. The program was designed to take advantage of the Kent-Holden partnership, and unique resources provided by each institution.
Students will get field and lab experience at both Kent State and Holden, participate in weekly seminars, and learn about hypothesis generation, project design, ethics in research, and data archiving in a geospatial database.
Students participating in the program will be provided housing and stipend. See the Kent State-Holden REU website for more information, application details, and important dates.
