Undergraduate Research Opportunity

Office of Graduate Studies

Please post, forward, or tell your students about the 2011 Nebraska Summer Research Program housed on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The program offers students an excellent opportunity to hone research skills and to experience life as a graduate student. Students will enhance their academic resume, work closely with faculty and peers, and have fun with social and professional development activities, all while receiving numerous benefits. Students historically underrepresented in graduate education are especially encouraged to apply. Due to funding restrictions, participation is limited to U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
All programs for 2011 are listed at http://go.unl.edu/205 and include projects in Applied Mathematics, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Redox Biology and Biochemistry, and Virology. We're featuring the project(s) listed below.
  • The Integrated Development of Bioenergy Systems REU explores the field of integrative plant biology with topics of energy and metabolism, climate change, genetic engineering, and health and nutrition researched using advance techniques in microbiology and through the lens of the role plants play. Students with backgrounds in mathematics or computer science who are interested in biology are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more at http://go.unl.edu/u60.
  • The Nebraska Materials Research Science and Engineering Center REU focuses on new magnetic structures and materials at the nanometer scale. Research projects involve nanodevices for space exploration and drug delivery, DNA chips, carbon nanotubes for hydrogen storage and nanomagnetic structures for faster computers and energy conversion. Learn more at http://go.unl.edu/us4.
Our online application makes it easy for students to apply. Priority review of applications begins Tuesday, February 15 and all applications are due Tuesday, March 1.
Thank you for your assistance in disseminating this information.
