The University of Akron – Posted by polymerreu@uakron.edu Akron, Ohio, United States

Job Description

The College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering offers a competitive summer research experience for undergraduate (REU) students. Students will participate in an 11-week summer internship to investigate a fundamental question within the broad disciplines of polymer science and polymer engineering including chemistry, physics, characterization, and biomaterials.

Each week, all interns will participate in research activities, a career development activity and discussions outlining their research progress.  Participants visit regional companies and a national laboratory. The summer will culminate with an oral or poster presentation of each intern’s research results at the annual Northeast Ohio Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Program runs from late May to mid August. Undergraduate researchers are paid a stipend and live on campus in a dormitory.  Please see our web site for details. https://www.uakron.edu/cpspe/academics/reu-summer-internships.dot
