2017 REU in the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at The University of Akron

This is just a kindly reminder that the deadline to apply the 2017 summer research experience (REU) program in the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at The University of Akron is approaching. We are about to review applications in a few weeks. Please encourage qualified students to submit applications. The application deadline is Friday, February 10, 2017.  Attached are our 2017 announcement and application.

This competitive REU program are sponsored by the National Science Foundation, The University of Akron, and corporate sponsors. Students will participate in an 11-week internship to investigate a fundamental question within the broad disciplines of polymer science and polymer engineering, including chemistry, physics, engineering, and biomaterials.  These interns will take part in research and career development activities, discussions outlining their research progress and visits to regional companies.  The summer will culminate with an oral or poster presentation of each intern’s research results at the Northeast Ohio NSF-REU Undergraduate Research Conference.

Stipends will be $7,000 ($2,000 are used by students to pay for on-campus housing and related expenses).

Our program will begin on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, and will end on Friday, August 11, 2017.  For further information, please visit our website:  http://www.uakron.edu/cpspe/academics/reu-summer-internships.dot.

Dear Biophysical Society Member,

Do you know an undergraduate student looking for a unique summer research experience? Or who may be interested in getting a feel for graduate school while working in a cutting-edge lab at a top-ranked research university?  If so, then please share this opportunity with them: Biophysical Society’s Summer Research Program in Biophysics.

Sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, this 11-week program, now in its tenth year, introduces underrepresented students* to the field of biophysics. Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the program combines lab experience with lectures, seminars, and team-building activities. All fees, housing, and most travel costs required to participate are covered, and participants receive a stipendto cover living expenses.

The Summer Research Program in Biophysics offers students a unique opportunity to conduct independent research through the support of a mentor and learn more about the exciting field of biophysics. Students both familiar and unfamiliar with biophysics can benefit greatly from this introductory program which uses biophysics to explore a variety of disciplines and topics, from biomedical engineering, to cell biology, to systems biology and structural chemistry. Successful participants in the past have had majors in biology, computer science, chemistry, mathematics, and physics to name just a few. This program provides great preparation for graduate school, includes professional development, and provides you with a network of peers you can rely on as you advance in your career. We hope you will encourage students to apply and considersharing this flyer with your students or peers!

The deadline for applications is February 15, 2017.

Additional details and the application can be found on the program’s website.

Please contact Daniel McNulty at dmcnulty@biophysics.org or 240-290-5611 with any questions.

*Financially disadvantaged individuals, students with disabilities, and individuals who have been found to be underrepresented in biomedical or behavioral research are eligible to apply. Nationally, these individuals include, but are not limited to: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans/Alaska Natives who maintain tribal affiliation or community attachment, Hawaiian Natives and natives of the US Pacific Islands. Individuals with disabilities are defined as those with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
