The CRISP Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is a Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) program.

The goal of the CRISP REU program is to offer high-quality, state-of-the-art research experiences, enrichment activities and professional development events to undergraduates. Current research topics range from thin film growth and characterization to friction and manipulation at the atomic level with projects involving computation, simulation, fabrication, characterization and image processing. Materials systems included semiconductors, dielectrics, optical materials and bio-materials.

Program Dates: June 3, 2019 - July 26, 2019

Application: Starting November 1, candidates must apply directly to the Yale SURF program through the Leadership Alliance Summer Research-Early Identification Program. Students must also complete the CRISP Supplementary Application to indicate interest. The entire application package, including two letters of recommendation and official transcript(s), must be received by February 01, 2019.

The University of Mississippi - Gulf Coast Summer Field Program

We are excited to announce our 2019 GCRL Summer Field Program course line-up.  Students can apply online by visiting the following URL: Usm.edu/GCRL-apply.  Classes will be filled on a first come first served basis.    Our field and laboratory intensive class sizes are kept small to ensure everyone gets a great experience.  With this in mind, we encourage students to apply early to secure a seat in the course of their choice.  Please share this information with students and colleagues that may have an interest in the Summer Field Program. We are looking forward to another great summer exploring the coastal habitats of the northern Gulf of Mexico. You can find more information at our website http://gcrl.usm.edu/summer_field/index.php or by searching “GCRL Summer Field Program” on facebook.  If you have any questions or if you need additional information, please contact myself or Margaret Firth at Margaret.firth@usm.edu or by phone at 228-818-8852.  We hope to see you on campus this summer!

The University of Iowa - Summer 2019 Research Experiences

The University of Iowa is offering ten NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) opportunities during the 2019 summer. Research projects will span a range of topics, including evolution of behavior, origin of species, cancer evolution, evolution of sex, and paleontology. REU students will work on one project, but through interactions with their cohort will ultimately receive a broad exposure to evolutionary science. As part of the program, students will: receive training in research best practices, participate in career workshops, create a digital exhibit based on their research for the University of Iowa Natural History Museum, and make formal research presentations based on their work. Housing, a meal allowance, stipend, and a travel allowance will be provided to all participants.

Indiana University - Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Animal Behavior

Our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) in Animal Behavior is a National Science Foundation sponsored program that offers unique opportunities for students interested in animal behavior. Our REU provides students from institutions across the country with research experiences guided by mentors from the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior at Indiana University. The internships are intended to encourage and enhance the participation of members from groups currently under-represented in science (racial minorities, first-generation college, and persons from low income families or with disabilities), but we seriously consider applications from any citizen or permanent resident of the United States who is currently enrolled in an undergraduate program.

Our Animal Behavior REU interns spend 10 weeks conducting research with mentors drawn primarily from the Departments of Biology, Anthropology, and Psychological & Brain Sciences. In addition, our interns attend lectures and participate in workshops on practical career skills (e.g., ethics, preparing a CV, studying for the GREs). Our summer research program is an excellent way to gain skills and prepare for graduate school and a career in the sciences.

Each undergraduate intern receives 1) a stipend of $5,250; 2) single-room housing on campus; 3) a supplemental on-campus meal plan; and 4) travel expenses to Indiana University. This year’s program dates are May 20 to July 27, 2019. The on-line application and other program information are on our web site at: https://animalbehavior.indiana.edu/research/reu/index.html

The APPLICATION DEADLINE is FEBRUARY 15, 2019.
