REU REU Training Site: Undergraduate Summer Research in Molecular Biophysics

Department of Chemistry, Frick Laboratory, Princeton University – Posted by acsgetexperience Princeton, New Jersey, United States

Job Description

The training program enables students of the physical, mathematical, or engineering sciences from colleges with limited research opportunities to address important problems in biology. The summer undergraduate program offers cross-disciplinary research experience with leading faculty mentors who apply the intellectual, experimental, or theoretical tools of those sciences to biological questions.

The program seeks undergraduates who are in the freshman or sophomore year of study in chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics who are interested in biology, and who are in good standing in their home institutions. They do not encourage applications from students majoring in biology without strong background in one of the above sciences, nor students in their third undergraduate year or beyond.

The program provides a 2020 stipend of $600 weekly, paid housing, and travel to and from Princeton from your home or school location plus (for students in the domestic program only, not overseas) $100 weekly food allowance. Housing is provided on campus in quarters with shared cooking facilities. Students have free access to the University’s considerable library and computing resources, and are eligible to use the campus gymnasium facilities at cost.

Position dates: June 8 – August 7, 2020
