Undergraduate and Graduate Opportunties
EEB 3407/5407: Ecology
Come study ecology at the University of Minnesota's Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, located only 35 miles north of the Twin Cities campus. Cedar Creek is one of the most famous and influential ecological research sites on Earth. It contains an exceptional diversity of plants and animals, partly because it is at the meeting point of the northern boreal forest, the eastern deciduous forest, and the western grasslands and savannas. Here you will visit current experiments, including studies that test how biodiversity loss affects ecosystems and whether climate change will speed up or slow down, work with data from ongoing studies, and collaborate with other students to develop your own field ecology group project.
Cedar Creek Graduate Fellows Program
- mentor undergraduate interns pursuing independent research projects throughout the summer;
- organize a research symposium at the beginning of the summer in which faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students present results from their ongoing studies at Cedar Creek;
- organize a weekly seminar series;
- offer weekly workshops that provide formal training on research proposal writing, reading journal articles, data analysis, poster presentations, and oral presentations; and
- organize a research symposium at the end of the summer in which undergraduate student researchers present the findings of their independent research projects.
