Social interactions lie at the core of animal and human societies. The faculty members involved in the IBSB program are engaged in research examining an array of social behaviors (parenting, mating, aggression, social preference) from a broad range of perspectives. Students will receive hands-on research experience in our laboratories involving a range of model organisms (rodents, carnivores, birds, lizards, salamanders, fish, insects, digital organisms) and levels of inquiry (molecular, cellular, systems, individuals, populations). Travel to and from East Lansing, and full room and board on MSU’s campus, are provided.
Students entering their junior or senior year in the Fall of 2014 are eligible to apply. Applicants should have a background in behavioral biology and should be majoring in a relevant discipline. We particularly encourage applications from women and members of underrepresented groups, including people with disabilities. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to participate.
