2015 REU Summer Internship

The College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at The University of Akron will be offering a competitive summer research experience (REU) program for the Summer of 2015, 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, characterization, 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, which will include $2,000 to be used for on-campus housing.

Our program will begin on Tuesday, May 26, 2015, and will end on Friday, August 7, 2015.  For further information, please visit our website:  http://www.uakron.edu/cpspe/academics/reu-summer-internships.dot.

Please encourage qualified students to apply.  The application deadline is Friday, February 6, 2015.  Attached, for your information, are our 2015 announcement and application.

The Annual National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering

The 17th Annual National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering will be held at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Labs from June 13-27, 2015.  This school is designed to help introduce graduate students to the capabilities available at the neutron and x-ray user facilities in the United States. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, include basic tutorials on the principles of neutron and x-ray scattering theory, the characteristics of neutron and synchrotron X-ray sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects.  As part of the school, students also conduct a series of short experiments to provide some hands-on experience using instruments at neutron and synchrotron sources, at Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source, and Oak Ridge’s Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities.

Students interested in attending should complete an application at http://neutrons.ornl.gov/nxs/ by February 23, 2015.  Please note that all the travel and lodging costs for students accepted to attend will be covered as part of the school.  Part of the application process includes submission of evaluation letters from among the student’s advisor, department chair and other professors.

Lecture notes and videos of the 2014 NXS School are available at: http://neutrons.ornl.gov/conf/nxs2013/
