NSF Division of Materials Research (DMR) supported Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is inviting applications for the Summer 2022. REU-projects may include, but not be limited to, in five research clusters: (1) computational materials research/machine learning, (2) materials under extreme conditions, (3) materials for energy applications, (4) materials for sensors and laser applications, and (5) biomaterials for implants, tissue engineering and drug delivery applications. This REU experience will be offered as an in person research model as well as a hybrid model which will include fully remote participation for computational research projects and partly remote and partly on the ground lab experiences for experimental research projects (depending on the research project).
The undergraduates will carry out the analysis of data generated in their research projects and make presentations on completed research to faculty members and other undergraduates participating in this program. All participants are required to participate in a campus-wide expo at the end of the program.
The program will offer 10-weeks flexible summer program during May 22, 2022 – July 29, 2022. The program will pay $6,000 over the entire 10-week period involving 400 hours of research with a faculty mentor at UAB (based on a 40 hour work week).
The application deadline is April 1, 2022.
