Despite the fact that they defected to the Big 10, the University of Nebraska has a lot of great things going on. As we all know, they host the annual Nebraska Conference for Undergrad Women in Math (The intrepid Dr. Schmidt is driving the OU van again this year!), they just let us know they’ll have research opportunities in a wide variety of areas this summer:
Are your students looking for summer research opportunities? Please post, forward, or tell your students about the 2013 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 2013 are listed here and include projects in Applied Mathematics, Bioenergy Systems, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Nanomaterials and Nanoscience, Optics and Laser Physics, Redox Biology, and Virology.
Our online application makes it easy for students to apply. Priority review of applications begins Friday, February 1 and all applications are due by Friday, February 15.
