The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis 
(NIMBioS) is now taking applications for its Summer Research Experiences 
for Undergraduates (SRE). The program will be held May 29 - July 20, 
2018, on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus. Undergraduate 
majors in biology, math, and related fieldswill live on campus and work 
in teams with UT professors, NIMBioS researchers, and collaborators to 
conduct research at the interface of mathematics and biology. This 
year's research projects are ecological niche modeling and risk 
assessment of thousand cankers disease; mosquito population response to 
environmental variables; modeling the management of feral cats with 
economic impacts; the spatial interactions between hunting and plant 
gathering in tropical forests; and using phylogenetics to understand 
cancer tumor evolution.

Participants receive free university apartment-style housing, a stipend 
of $4100, and up to $650 of support for travel to/from Knoxville.

*Application Deadline:  February 14, 2018*
