Categories: Internship, Undergraduate

Date: 4/1/2019

SIUC seeks applicants from undergraduate students from groups traditionally under-represented in Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering; as always, all applications are welcome. Review of applications will commence after February 25, 2019; applications received after that date will still be reviewed until all positions are filled.

The program will begin May 28, 2019 and will commence for approximately 9 weeks. Participating students will work with mentors from the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, or Microbiology to perform materials research (broadly defined)—with emphases in nanoscience/nanotechnology, energy research, smart materials, biomaterials, materials characterization/spectroscopy, polymers, computational modeling, and materials fabrication among other subjects. In this program, students will work on independent research projects and receive hands-on training in the use of state-of-the-art instrumentation and methods.

Student benefits include a stipend of nearly $5000, $1,000 research expenditure allowance, free college housing, and a travel allowance to facilitate transportation from the student’s home institution or to conferences (up to $750).
