REU: Experimental and Computational Methods for Materials Discovery

Applications are now being accepted for the Summer 2024 program which will run from May 27 through August 2, 2024. Participants in the program will conduct research and take part in group activities including seminars on cutting-edge areas of materials physics; workshops focusing on graduate programs, career opportunities in the physical sciences and engineering, and scientific communications skills; and field trips to laboratories on and off campus. You can get a better idea of these activities from the links above. For the Summer 2024 program the anticipated stipend is $6,000. There is an allowance for travel to/from Gainesville, FL, and also housing is provided. Weekends during the program will be left open for participants to explore the abundant attractions of North and Central Florida.

Eligibility: REU participants must be undergraduate students and must be citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. We especially encourage applications from members of groups under-represented in science and engineering, from students with disabilities, and from students enrolled at institutions where research opportunities are limited.

For more information, please contact the Program Director, Amlan Biswas. The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution.
