    Summer 2019 Undergrad Research

    The University of Iowa, in collaboration with the National Science Foundation, is offering summer undergraduate research opportunities in interdisciplinary evolutionary science. Participating students will spend the summer working on individualized projects in University of Iowa research laboratories. Students will also learn about career opportunities, design a digital exhibit at the University of Iowa Natural History Museum, and make formal presentations of their research. Housing, food and travel allowances, and a generous stipend will be provided to all participants.
