Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU program)

The Jornada Basin LTER has funding to support a modest number of undergraduate research (JRN-REU) fellowships each summer. Students will work with mentors associated with JRN-LTER or NMSU on research related to Jornada LTER research themes.  For details and application instructions regarding the 2020 REU program, please see the attached flier and application form.

Applications are due to Dr. Niall Hanan, usually in March each year.  Email Niall ( if you have any questions.
