University of Pittsburgh TECBio REU
Training and Experimentation in Computation Biology (TECBio): “Simulation and Visualization of Biological Systems at Multiple Scales” is a 10-week NSF-funded REU program that provides a challenging graduate-level research experience in computational biology at University of Pittsburgh. In addition to performing cutting-edge research, TECBio students will also participate in other academic activities, such as classes, seminars, and discussions, while experiencing the various social and cultural activities available in Pittsburgh.
Kansas State REU in Sustainable Bioenergy
The Center for Sustainable Energy is seeking applications for its summer 2011 REU program in sustainable bioenergy funded by the National Science Foundation.
Kansas State REU
During the last 20 years, there has been a growing realization that sustainable development must receive a higher priority in the years ahead. There is a particular need for scientists and engineers with expertise in sustainability who can develop innovative solutions to the problem of dwindling natural resources. This REU offers talented undergraduate students the opportunity to become engaged in research that addresses the area of sustainable energy and to develop the skills and viewpoints necessary to be part of the solution to the issues associated with sustainability. Students selected for this program will conduct research as part of a multidisciplinary team on one application of sustainable energy. The research environment will be vibrant, with interaction with faculty and graduate students from different disciplines and with other REU students.
University of Colorado REU
The CU-Boulder Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering will be conducting a ten-week summer research program in functional materials science and engineering. In collaboration with a faculty member and a graduate student or post-doctoral fellow, each undergraduate participant will pursue fundamental investigations of novel advanced materials designed to have specific properties. Examples include nanocomposites, biomaterials, sensors, catalysts, polymers, gels, ceramics, thin films, and membranes. The program also includes a weekly seminar series, organized social events, and a student poster competition. Undergraduates in chemical engineering, bioengineering, chemistry, biochemistry, environmental engineering, and related fields are eligible for the program and applications from members of under-represented groups are strongly encouraged. Please note that eligibility for this program is restricted to US citizens and permanent residents.
