Another REU from Dr. Kornelson:

I am writing to request your help in identifying undergraduate students who are interested in a summer research experience. Our faculty has been impressed with the quality of students at your institution and I hope you will encourage your students to consider applying to the 2012 Nebraska Summer Research Program.
Nebraska’s summer program offers research opportunities in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. A complete listing of faculty mentors and research project descriptions can be found on our website at Students can also find information about program benefits including a competitive stipend, room and board, travel expenses and more.

Summer 2012 programs include:

Applied Mathematics
Bioenergy Systems
Biomedical Engineering
Nanomaterials and Nanoscience
Optics and Laser Physics
Redox Biology and Biochemistry

During the Nebraska Summer Research Program, students receive first-hand exposure to research and the experiences of graduate school. They work closely with faculty mentors and research teams of graduate students and other summer scholars. Students also have opportunities to participate in meaningful social and professional development activities outside of the laboratory.

Our online application ( ) makes it easy for students to apply. Priority review begins Wednesday, February 15 and all applications are due Monday, March 1. Students historically underrepresented in graduate education and students from academic institutions where research programs are limited are especially encouraged to apply.

Please feel free to forward this to your students or to download our flyer to post ( ). If you or your students have questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
