Doing Research at Other Institutions
It is also possible to do research at other institutions during off-campus terms. These experiences broaden your experience in biology and may lead to contacts for graduate school or jobs after graduation. We strongly encourage students to seek opportunities to do research in places other than Dartmouth, and are happy to assist students looking for off-campus research opportunities.
Please note that the Biology department does not grant credit for independent research conducted at other institutions. Independent study courses taken at other institutions are not transferable to Dartmouth for Biology credit. Similarly, work conducted away from campus may not be used for Bio 95/96/97 credit unless there is a substantial component of the research that is planned with a Dartmouth Biology faculty member well in advance of the initiation of the research project. If you have any questions about these policies, please contact the Prof. Natasha Grotz. Useful sites:
- The National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates program provides lots of research opportunities (especially in ecology and evolutionary biology) around the world, mostly during the summer term. There are both REU sites, with lots of students, and individual REU projects associated with research projects funded through NSF. For information, visit the NSF site.
This part of the site is a work in progress - if you find a useful site for off-campus research opportunities, please email your suggestions to the Prof. Natasha Grotz for inclusion in the next web site upgrade.
