NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program
Computational Modeling and Simulation in the Applied Sciences
Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA
Summer 2020: June 8 to July 31
Overview: Are you an undergraduate interested in improving your coding
skills to address research problems in the sciences? Interested in
spending a summer at a dynamic university, working with a faculty member
and meeting others who share your interests? Getting paid to enhance
your resume and edge out other applicants with your advanced skills? If
so, you will be interested in applying for a National Science Foundation
supported summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program
focused on the computational modeling in the applied sciences. Eight
lucky undergraduate students will work with MTSU faculty on
computational research problems in molecular modeling, math biology,
acoustics, and optics. Each student will complete a specific
computational research problem in collaboration with a faculty mentor.
To support the research process, there will be a Python boot camp to
elevate students’ programming skills and experience. Other events will
include professional development and social activities. At the end of
the program, students will share their research findings in a symposium.
The program will run from June 8 to July 31, 2020 (8 weeks).
Flyer: Please help us advertise the program by posting our flyer at your
institution – https://www.cs.mtsu.edu/~coms-reu/MTSU-COMS-NSF-REU.pdf
Eligibility: All applicants who are interested in receiving NSF support
must currently be a (1) U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or permanent
resident and (2) an undergraduate freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior
graduating no earlier than September 2021. We are especially encouraging
students from traditionally under-represented groups in mathematics and
science (i.e., African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans,
Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, students with
disabilities, first generation college students, and U.S. veterans) as
well as students from institutions with limited research opportunities
(e.g., community colleges) or students in financial need to apply. The
online application is available at www.cs.mtsu.edu/~coms-reu/
Support: Participants will receive a stipend ($4,000) plus housing and
subsistence, financial assistance for travel to and from Murfreesboro.
For full consideration, on-line applications must be received by
February 16, 2020.
