2020 Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates

13 February 2020

We are now recruiting for our National Science Foundation (NSF) supported Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program (May 17 to July 24, 2020) in “Experimental and Computational Materials Research.” Our program is among the longest running NSF REU programs in the country.  We offer a broad range of interdisciplinary materials research experiences to undergraduate students with diverse backgrounds in physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, and engineering.                

The research projects include, but are not limited to, electronic materials, nano-materials, lasers & optical materials, biosensors, biophysics & biomaterials and computer modeling. The scientific research projects are developed specifically for undergraduates by an interdisciplinary team consisting of science and engineering faculty at UAB.

The application can submitted electronically via our web site: https://cas.uab.edu/cnmb/research-experiences-for-undergraduates/application-process/.  Our application deadline is March 15, 2020.  Decisions will be made no later than April 15, 2020. We are especially interested in receiving applications from qualified women and underrepresented minority candidates.

If you have any questions about logistics, housing, and travel arrangements, please contact Charita Cadenhead, our Program Coordinator at (205) 975-8076 or via e-mail at charita@uab.edu.
