The University of Texas at Tyler Mathematics Department will be hosting an NSF-funded REU site for summer 2012. The REU in mathematics is targeting minority (especially American Indian) and first generation college students, but we encourage everyone to apply. We invite talented undergraduate students to submit an application to participate in our NSF REU
Students will work in groups of three with faculty advisors in the areas of combinatorics on words, knot theory, and tiling theory. In addition to research group work, students will have many opportunities to interact with faculty and other students in seminars and other social activities. The eight week program will run from June 18 to August 10. Participants will
receive a $4000 stipend to pay for housing, food, and entertainment while staying in Tyler.
Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents to participate. We will begin reviewing applications on February 13 and will likely make offers by mid-March. Please direct appropriate students to our website http://www.math.uttyler.edu/reu/ .
If you have students who you feel should be invited to submit an application, then please send their names and email addresses to Dr. Jennifer McLoud-Mann.
