Undergraduate Research Internship

Plant Virus Biodiversity and Ecology is one of two scientific theme areas in the State of Oklahoma's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for 2005-2008. The research infrastructure funding includes support for individuals at several levels:

Graduate Students | Postdoctoral Fellows | Faculty | Technical Positions

Graduate Students

The Plant Virus Biodiversity and Ecology theme area searched for five or six individuals to study towards Ph.D. or M.S. degrees at the University of Oklahoma (OU) or Oklahoma State University (OSU) beginning in 2005.

During the first year students participated in the collection of specimens and the refinement of techniques. Students became familiar with the project and the project scientists and picked advisors and an advisory committee.

The programs that project scientists are affiliated with are:

Applications were submitted both to the Plant Virus Biodiversity and Ecology program and an academic degree program (or advisor, depending on program).

The following students are receiving or have received program support:

Graduate Students | Postdoctoral Fellows | Faculty | Technical Positions

Postdoctoral Fellows

To foster multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional collaboration in this project, and to train future senior scientists in the field of plant virus biodiversity and ecology, the project will include five postdoctoral workers. Each will have two mentors. The primary research emphasis of each position is given below, but the individuals hired are expected also to participate in the overall scientific themes of the project. These scientists will be expected to assist in directing the research experiences of undergraduate and graduate students.
