Collaborative Research on the Arthropod Way of Life

Biological Sciences


CRAWL is a new project at ETSU, funded by the National Science Foundation, designed especially to engage undergraduate students in research at the interface of math and biology.

Teams of undergraduate students will partner with faculty members from the Department of Biological Sciences and the Department of Mathematics & Statistics for at least one summer plus the following academic year. We currently are recruiting both Biology and Math majors and minors for this program.
If interested, download the application using the link on the left side of this page. Full-time summer paid fellowships and stipends for the academic year will be provided. Review of applications begins on Feb. 1; the program starts May 23, 2013.

CRAWLers will fully engage in the research process, beginning with experimental design, followed by data collection and analyses, presenting at professional meetings and, finally, publishing in professional journals. Progress will be facilitated by summer workshops on related topics and by active mentoring from faculty members. For more information on the project, including how to apply, please contact .
