Student Research Opportunities

Each UMBS course involves research, typically in the form of a group or individual research project. You will gain first-hand research experience simply by taking your classes. However, you may wish to pursue your own research independent of UMBS spring/summer courses. We invite graduate and advanced undergraduate students from any institution to apply to conduct their research at the UMBS. 

Our location is optimal for research in ecology and evolutionary biology, as well as atmospheric chemistry. We have a variety of habitats on or near Biological Station property and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for data collection and analysis. For many research sites, we have long-term or historical data sets for baseline or reference points.

The UMBS is pleased to offer the Community and Lakes Environmental Awareness and Research (CLEAR) Fund Fellowship to undergraduate and graduate students. Additionally, alumni gifts and University sources have provided limited funding to assist graduate students who are working toward their degree while in residence at the Station. More information can be found on the Graduate Student Research Fellowships page.

The 2024 deadline to submit undergraduate student fellowship applications (CLEAR Fellowship and Bach-Hazlett Fellowship) is Feb. 14, 2024. Click on the fellowship tabs below to learn more.
