The Mathematics and Statistics Departments of North Carolina State University invite qualified applicants for a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program that pairs mathematics and statistics students for interdisciplinary summer research projects. Proposed projects span collaborative applications in atmospheric science, materials science, cardiovascular disease, precision medicine, climate change and wildland fires using tools from linear algebra, partial differential equations, probability, sensitivity analysis, parameter inference, optimization, and machine learning. In addition to the technical aspects of the program, students also receive background on useful auxiliary skills like mathematical programming, technical writing, applying for graduate school, and preparing scientific presentations.
Most DRUMS students will work at NCSU for 10 weeks during summer and remotely during the 2024 fall semester; some students may participate remotely for the entire program. Formal summer activities will be May 30th – Aug 4th, with arrival May 29nd and departure Aug 5th. The work during the fall semester will be conducted online. Time commitment for this part of the program will be approximately 5 hours per week including a 1h weekly remote meeting.
We encourage students of all backgrounds to apply. This includes students who might have nontraditional mathematical and/or statistical training, or who are just beginning their mathematical studies.
