REU Research Experience for Undergraduates (MEM-C)

University of Washington Molecular Engineering Materials Center – Posted by sntaylor Anywhere

Job Description

Undergraduates, including veterans, will find that the research topics are both challenging and relevant to their experience. How can we provide mobile, lightweight and inexpensive energy sources to our forces and to the communities they work with? How can materials research lead to new electronics that are super miniaturized, low energy consumption and reliable? How can new kinds of sensors be used to improve safety, efficiency, and effectiveness?

If selected you will be embedded in one of the MEM·C labs for 9 weeks June 24-August 23.  You will work with a graduate student and faculty to develop a research project, gain training in relevant techniques and instrumentation, collect data and finally produce a poster and research abstract. Students participate in a weekly seminar on undergraduate research covering research ethics, writing a research abstract, making a scientific poster. Students participate in a weekly Materials Science special interest group in which they read scientific journals or tour other labs.

  • Duration: 9 weeks
  • Dates: June 24 to August 23 2019
  • Stipend: $5000
  • Travel and Housing: On campus housing, $700 food allowance
